GHS Students continue to collect donations for hurricane victims

Griffin High School students, staff and alumni have already collected over 2,950 items for hurricane relief! Items collected included school supplies, cases of water, cleaning supplies and personal hygiene items. Many of the supplies will be loaded on trucks Monday and Wednesday headed to Texas to help those in need. These donations include over 115 cases of water donated by chorus students and other school supplies provided by many student organizations. Many thanks to the girls soccer team, who picked up the items from classrooms and organized the materials for distribution.

Griffin High School would also like to thank alumni like Mr. James Kent, class of 1994, his father Mr. Elbert Kent and his fellow employees at Swissport Cargo Services in Atlanta for their help collecting supplies.

The school will continue to receive donations for the next two weeks. Future donations will continue to help Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey and may be diverted to Florida or south Georgia to help people recover from Hurricane Irma.
