Ways to Help
I live in the township where all the schools mentioned in this article are located, although my kids don't go to any of those schools. I especially like the backpack project. From the story:
As students in Bucks County schools bundle up to face winter, children who are victims of Hurricane Katrina are living in trailers and tents without heat.
To help keep them warm, kids at Afton Elementary in the Pennsbury School District are filling 200 backpacks with socks, hats and gloves to send to Hancock North Central Elementary in Kiln, Miss. The student council and PTO are organizing the project called "Backpacks from Bucks to Biloxi."
Principal Norman Gross said Cary Weiss, general manager of Kohl's department store in Turnersville, N.J., and an Afton parent donated the bags.
