In the sidebar today I have a temporary link to a flood relief effort spearheaded by an Atlanta television station. 11 Alive has teamed up with The School Box to collect much needed school supplies for Clarkdale Elementary students who this week lost their school, and in some cases their homes, due to flooding. The news story I've linked to provides the essential facts, but I thought it might be helpful if I shared specifics in terms of the needed supplies. Helpful items include: rulers, notebook paper, children's scissors, crayons, pencils, notebooks, glue, and colored pencils.
The drive continues through Sunday, September 27th and there are numerous drop off points listed here.
