Clubs Connect to Help Hurricane Victims


The Middle School’s Home and Careers Club and Student Council started the new school year with renewed community service efforts. The two clubs joined forces to collect nonperishable food items and household supplies for the Hurricane Matthew victims in North Carolina.  

From Oct. 13-21, the students in both clubs sorted and packed seven boxes for shipping. Thanks to the generosity of the Cpl. Kyle Carpenter Division of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadets in Farmingdale and the local VFW, which also collected donations and paid for the shipping costs, the donations were immediately dispersed to those in need by the USNSCC in Raeford, North Carolina, a town devastated by the hurricane.
Students also wrote letters and notes of encouragement packaged with the boxes for the hurricane victims.
