Dear Staff and Parents:
For the 5th year in a row, Richmond County Schools will be participating in United Way of the CSRA and their AmeriCorps*VISTAs (Volunteers in Service to America) 2016 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service Project. A MLK Donation Box has been received at our school and has been placed in a prominent area. We encourage staff and parents to participate in this service project by collecting hygiene products and sending or bringing them to school to be placed in our MLK Donation Box. Proceeds will go to help homeless individuals and families, seniors in the Senior Food Box Program, and Richmond County School students experiencing the effects of poverty. Together, last year Richmond County Schools raised over $16,600 worth of donated products for emergency hygiene kits. With your help, this year’s goal is to provide emergency hygiene kits to at least 2,000 households in Richmond County that often go without the basic hygiene necessities most of us take for granted. It is our hope that we will be able to help those struggling and give them a greater sense of self and a brighter outlook on life during trying times in their lives.
Below is a sample of hygiene necessities needed for our school’s MLK Donation Box:
Last year, there was a shortage of deodorant, toothpaste, and toothbrushes, so please keep these in mind when shopping.
Over the holiday season, as you are cleaning out cabinets at home and running across sale items while shopping, please be on the lookout for one or more of these items to drop into our schools MLK Donation Box. We need both travel size products that will be put in individual hygiene kits and full size products that will be put into family hygiene kits. Our MLK Donation Box will remain at our school until Thursday, January 14th, at which time AmeriCorps*VISTAs will come back to pick it up – hopefully overflowing with donated hygiene products! Also, our school may opt to keep some or all of our hygiene donations for use by our in-house students and their families simply by completing and submitting an MLK Tally Sheet showing our totals.
Thank you all so very much for helping as we continue “SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY”! The top 5 Richmond County Schools with the most donations will receive awards and be honored at the February 2016 RCBE Board Meeting. If you have any questions, please contact the Principal’s office.
