Please help if you can!!
Hurricane Florence has adversely affected so many, and we found out that a dear friend of one of our families is the principal at Laurel Hill Elementary School in Laurinburg, Scotland County, NC. After reaching out to the administration at Laurel Hill, it seems that they have more families displaced than they originally thought.🙁
In the same spirit of adopting Friendswood Junior High after hurricane Harvey, we are going to adopt Laurel Hill and help as we can. We will be sending these store specific (Walmart, Food Lion, Save-a-Lot, and Lowes), or generic (AMEX, VISA, MasterCard), gift cards to assist these families.
If you would like to help us, please send as many gift cards as you’d like in denominations of $20 to $25, or less, so that they are easier for school to share. Please do not think that any amount is too small, they all add up and they are in such dire need! Last year we raised over $1,5oo in gift cards. They definitely add up quickly.
When you send them in, please make sure your name is attached (and address if not a BCS student/family) and you will receive a tax deduction letter from us for this cause.
We will take these donations until they stop coming in. We will send first round in about 2 weeks, and then keep sending periodically as we get them. This time frame may change depending on the situation there, as there are reports of more evacuation because of flooding. We will make sure they are sent when we know someone is there to receive them.
Please drop off to Ms. Danielle, Ms. Julie, or Ms. Becky, OR… if you are mailing them:
