COE student group joins hurricane relief initiative for Savannah
The College of Education’s School Psychology Student Association (SPSA) and the School Psychology Program are partnering with Communities in Schools of Savannah (CIS of Savannah) to collect items for those impacted by Hurricane Matthew.
CIS of Savannah is requesting support as they strive to assist Chatham County students and families post-Hurricane Matthew. It has come to their attention that many of their students and families living in the Westlake Apartments, as well as the surrounding area, experienced flooding and damage to their homes during Hurricane Matthew. Many lost everything. In an effort to meet the need and support Chatham County students and families, CIS of Savannah has launched a donation drive. Items to be collected include everything from school supplies and personal care items to school uniforms and clothing.
The following items are requested/suggested:
- Personal hygiene Items: toothpaste, shampoo/conditioner, body wash/soap bars, deodorant, etc.
- Child size clothing: boy’s/girl’s underwear, socks, undershirts, etc.
- Adult size clothing: men’s/women’s underwear, socks, undershirts, etc.
- Feminine hygiene products
- Toilet paper
- School supplies
- Non-perishable food
SPSA will be collecting donations from now until Thursday, October 20, and delivering them to CIS of Savannah on Friday, October 21.
Donations can be delivered Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to the College of Education building, room 3100.
