One of our parents took it upon herself to organize a tornado relief drive for one of the other communities affected by the recent tornadoes. Jessica Ann Smith wrote up the posts and notices, collected some of the donations herself, and delivered them to the appropriate organizations. Though she gives us (Young Forest Martial Arts and Blue Lantern Tea) a lot of credit, all we really did was provide a collection point. We thank Jessica for organizing this drive and giving us the opportunity to be apart of it! We also thank everyone who donated to our drive. We are certain those in need will greatly appreciate it.
And thank you to everyone who has organized drives, fundraisers, who have donated goods and services, and to those who have traveled to the affected areas and directly helped those in need. And an extra special thank you to our immediate community; Greenville! So many people from Greenville organized drives, fundraisers, donated goods and services, and traveled to the affected areas and directly helped those in need. I am so proud to be a Greenvillite!
Here is a post from Jessica Ann Smith showing pictures of collected goods, and sharing some other important information regarding donations and what else you can do to get involved.
