I just got off the phone with a Citadel mom in NY, Bonnie Ashley. I first came in contact with Bonnie at the end of her son’s knob year when I was recruiting volunteers for the Citadel Family Association’s Area Rep program. Her son is a senior now.
Our conversation tonight was not about The Citadel, but rather about the devastation the super storm, Sandy, has brought to Bonnie’s area of NY. She is a high school science teacher at Freeport High School. Many of her students and their families have lost everything.
Bonnie and her fellow teachers are trying to help their students by asking for donations of underwear and socks. They have a particular need for sizes that will fit elementary aged children of both genders. There is also a need for diapers. The families have lost everything. They have no access to laundry facilities.
Bonnie has asked for donations to be sent to her. She will deliver the donated items to the schools for distribution. Please consider picking up a package of underwear and socks and mailing them to Bonnie at the address below. If you would like to help financially, please send a check to Bonnie’s address.
Make the check payable to: Freeport Teachers Association, in the memo section put “Sandy Relief Effort.”
