Baptist HillBaptist Hill Middle High School seniors Lashawna Brooks and Tyneisha Nelson organized a supply drive last month for the residents of Louisiana who were affected by Hurricane Ida. The supply drive included everyday items such as clothing, shoes, water, feminine hygiene products,  and baby products. 

With the help of teacher Sarah Hogle, the students designed a flyer and reached out to individuals for support of the drive. 

Carolina Benchworks, owned by the husband and wife team, Michael and  Stefanie Auclair of Monks Corner agreed to transport the items from Baptist  Hill to Louisiana.  

“We are so thankful to our community members that donated, said Brooks. There was over 200 pounds worth of donations!” 

“Words cannot explain how thrilled we are with the outcome of this drive,”  added Nelson. “We are proud of Bobcat nation and glad we could help out  the residents of Louisiana.”
