South Elementary School families collected clothing, toiletries, cleaning supplies and many other items to be delivered to two schools in Margate, New Jersey, that were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.
The collection was spear-headed by Principal Dr. Michelle Cinciripino, who is friends with the principal of Eugene A. Tighe Elementary School in Margate City School District.
Cinciripino enlisted the help of South’s Home and School Association to help coordinate the drive, which will benefit both Tighe and William H. Ross Elementary School (also a part of Margate City School District).
Home and School Association members helped sort the items that were brought in and also helped to load up the van being used to deliver the supplies.
The vehicle used to make the delivery of supplies was provided free-of-charge by STA, Perkiomen Valley School District’s transportation provider.
