Albany-- Many young hurricane evacuees will head to South Georgia schools as early as Tuesday morning.

The Red Cross shelter wants to make sure they have the supplies they need. Monday night, the shelter at Beattie Road Church of Christ made much needed materials available for evacuees. Parents can pick up anything from crayons and pencils to school uniforms and shoes.

The shelter hopes this will help to make the students comfortable in their new environments. "We are dedicated to improving and giving care to human life and this is just one facet of that that's being operated through this facility," says volunteer Diane Daniel.

Evacuees who aren't sure what school their children should attend can call the Dougherty County school transportation line at 431-1265 or public information at 431-1264.
