Alabama Tornado Assistance: Scouts for Schools
If you're local and looking for a way to help with tornado disaster assistance, consider helping our Girl Scout Troops with their Scouts for Schools effort.
The school in Hackleburg, AL, was demolished (like most of the town - see photos here) by last week's tornado.
Classes are going to resume Monday morning at a local church that wasn't destroyed, but they have no supplies. The list of things they need is below. Supplies can be new or used (as long as they're in good condition).
Plastic tubs with lids (i.e. Rubbermaid, etc) -- medium and large
loose leaf lined paper
Pens - red, blue and black
rulers, compasses, protractors
post it notes
paper clips / binder clips
books for the younger classes to read
Play equipment (balls, jump ropes, hula hoops, etc.)
White boards/flip charts and markers or Black boards and chalk
Musical instruments or sheet music for singing
Drop-off is at (NEW LOCATION) Vestavia Hills Elementary West from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. this Saturday (May 7). We'll be in front of the school (the carpool area).
Details for out of town donations of supplies and money:
Make checks payable to One Vestavia, in the memo put Scouts for Schools. This is very important because the memo is how we will be able to keep track of donations specifically for our cause. Checks and supplies can be sent to:
