WORTH CO., GA (WALB) -

Worth County folks are rallying together to help those who lost everything in the Baton Rouge flooding.

Worth County Middle School Special education teacher Brent Joyner and her students created bins to collect much needed school supplies for students and teachers in Louisiana. 

Donations came poring in Wednesday. 

Joyner, who is originally from Louisiana, said she is amazed by the community's overwhelming support so far. 

"I love the fact that we Georgians can rally around together and help other people in surrounding communities. It means a lot to me to show that we have a lot of compassion and we're teaching our kids empathy.  I like that," said Joyner.

If you'd like to donate school supplies, you can drop off items at Worth County Middle School.
