Meadow School lends a hand to Union Elementary

Meadow School students and teachers volunteered on their day off to finalize packing buckets for a supply drive to help those affected by Hurricane Florence.

The Oct. 5 drive was organized by the Meadow School Beta Club and was under the direction of teacher Gayle Hobbs.

Susan Brown, a teacher at Meadow, worked alongside Hobbs and the students to recruit volunteers to donate supplies.

Volunteers for the supply drive included Lowe's Home Improvement of Clinton, Parker Gas, Johnson's Transmission of Dunn, Advance Signs in Angier, and several community members. Staff members also provided donations to make the event a success.

Donations were sorted into 150 five-gallon buckets that were donated by Lowe's. Each bucket was filled with nonperishable items and hygiene products. After they were filled, they were delivered to Union Elementary for distribution.
