Waycross - They've produced their own advertisement, but these students aren't selling a product or asking for your money. They want you help in their Hurricane Relief project.
"We are collecting canned goods and other items for people who lost their homes," said Hannah Harper.
Creative Writing Teacher John Carter spearheaded the food drive as a way to teach kids an educational and life lesson. "I feel like I need to work with students on things that will affect other people, teach them the importance of helping people and also the importance of writing skills," said Carter.
But they're doing much more than just collecting food here. The unique ways they're marketing the drive requires a little creativity. "We've made flyers and put them up and down the halls, we've created an article for the newspaper and made some boxes to put the food in," said Harper.
And after just one day of donations, collection boxes are already overflowing. "These people are homeless and don't have anything left and they need our help," said Justin Patton, Sixth Grader.
"It will make me feel happy because I know I did something good for other people," said Harper.
People whose lives will be changed by the simple generosity and creativity of these youngsters.
