Schools collecting supplies for Hurricane Michael relief

Two local schools are involved with collecting relief items for those in the Florida panhandle and southwest Georgia who were heavily impacted by Hurricane Michael. Students at Rock Springs Christian Academy and church members collected over 100 cases of water, diapers, baby food, canned goods and cleaning supplies which they transported to First Baptist Church in Bainbridge for distribution. Donn Mapp and Dan Singletary transported the materials. ’The church there is taking them to folks in the outlying areas of their county that have been hardest hit and still don’t have power,’ Rock springs pastor Benny Tate said Thursday. Students at Lamar County Elementary School have also mounted a collection drive. Collection boxes are located in the school lobby for students and citizens to drop off items. Critical needs are for tarps, bug spray, first aid kits, bandages, water, baby wipes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, paper plates, soaps, lotions, batteries, cleaning supplies and sunscreen. For more information, call the school at 770-358-5556.
