On Saturday, Oct. 6, volunteers at Carolina Forest High School and its NJROTC unit distributed food, cleaning items, water and other supplies to members of the local community who lost their homes to flooding due to Hurricane Florence.
Volunteers assembled over 100 cleaning supply buckets to disperse to the many people in the Myrtle Beach and Conway areas who are displaced from their homes.
In addition, school volunteers collected a large amount of non-perishable foods of all kinds and other miscellaneous foods to share with those in need. A number of Cadets, teachers, and other volunteers also delivered packed lunches to people in developments who were still flooded.
“There was a cluster of staff and students who came to help out organizing supplies and delivering them,” said principal Gaye Driggers of Carolina Forest High School. Students and staff from numerous schools in the Horry County School District came to help the people affected in this harsh time.
“It’s good to see all of these people come together and become something bigger than themselves, added Driggers.
