CES second grade class donates field trip money to help storm victims
Second grade students at Centre Elementary School made a generous contribution to Recovery Efforts in Cherokee County on Wednesday afternoon, May 18.
The entire second grade faculty along with Principal Dewayne Pierce and students made their presentation of a $1,000 check to WEIS Assistant News Director Joey Weaver on behalf of the WEIS Radio Disaster Relief Fund.
Second Grade Teacher Lana Jones said that the there were two field trips planned prior to the storms that devastated the area on April 27th – because of the storms those trips had to be cancelled and parents were given the option of either being given a refund or donating money to storm victims.
Mrs. Jones went on to say that they were overwhelmed with the generosity of their parents and students who decided to donate their field trip monies to help those who had been affected by the storms.
To date through the overwhelming generosity of the public the WEIS Radio Disaster Relief Fund has been able to raise in excess of $47,000 benefiting storm victim’s right here in Cherokee County.
The staff and management at WEIS extended appreciation to the kids, parents and faculty and staff at Centre Elementary School for their very generous contribution – and to all of you who have donated and contributed.
