SAVANNAH, Ga. – There is now a way to help the Westlake Apartments and surrounding communities.
Communities in Schools of Savannah has initiated the Kids Closet drive, which will help families effected by the storm.
You can donate items like school supplies, uniforms and personal care supplies online at www.cissavannah.org or mail your donations and make them payable to Communities in Schools of Savannah.
You can also drop of items at 2126 East Victory Drive #167, Savannah, GA 31404.
All items will go to families at DeRenne Middle School, Myers Middle School, Beach High School and Haven Elementary School.
“It is important to understand that most of our families are low income and struggle with the most basic expenses,” Catalina Garcia-Quick, Executive Director of Communities in Schools of Savannah, said. “Something like this is catastrophic as most do not own their home, they rent, so therefore the insurances most homeowners think of, do not exist for these families.”
Below is a list of the uniforms and supplies the students need:
Haven Elementary School Uniforms : Youth Sizes, S, M, L, XL Haven Elementary serves K-5 students
DeRenne Middle School School Uniforms: Sizes S, M, L, XL
Derenne Middle School, School School Supplies: 6-8 grade list(s)
Myers Middle School School Uniforms: Sizes S, M, L, XL
Beach High School, School Uniforms: Sizes S, M, L, XL
Beach High School, School Supplies: 9-12 grade list(s)
“Immediately we request financial donations or donations of gift cards – specifically VISA, Master Card, Wal-Mart, Target, & SAMS,” Garcia-Quick added. “Our goal is to purchase what is needed as needed so that we may support our families in the best possible way.”
