VMCS Helps N.C. Students

Funds raised for postage   Students raised donations   Students with check


Autumn brought almost daily wind and rain to Grand Island, but nothing like what the children of Wilmington, N.C. had to face during Hurricanes Florence and Michael. When GICSD retiree Sue Carter, who relocated to Wilmington, brought the devastation of Mary C. Williams Elementary School to our attention, the staff and students of Veronica E. Connor Middle School responded to her plea.  At Carter’s suggestion, gently used clothing was collected and dropped off at Student Services. Sale of pizza, beverages and desserts at Open House by JV DECA and Student Services started the postage fund for shipping costs. Fahim Mojawalla of the Island Ship Center graciously offered to ship at cost to the hurricane stricken area. Pictured with Fahim are the managers and controllers of the Family and Consumer Science entrepreneurs who generously donated their profits from sale of cookie pizza, dirt cups and Oreo truffles to add to the postage fund.
