NHS sponsors donation drive for Michael victims in Mexico Beach

National Honor Society is currently holding a donation drive for the victims of Hurricane Michael in Mexico Beach. Donations can be dropped at the CHS media center.

The Society is requesting very specific cleaning supplies for their donation drive, including Lysol, bleach, spray bottles, cleaners, mops, shovels, buckets, and other necessities. The supplies will be directly delivered to those who are suffering from the disaster of Hurricane Michael.

National Honor Society will also be selling the "#mexicobeachstrong" shirts and donating all profits to the victims of Hurricane Michael. The shirts will continue to be sold until December at the earliest. The shirts are now available in long sleeves.

The society will also be donating all profits that were collected from our student talent show here at CHS before Fall Break to the victims in Mexico Beach.

Allison Knight, mother of CHS freshman Shelby Knight, will be distributing these items around Mexico Beach to the Hurricane victims.

The Knight family also has a food truck in Mexico Beach to aid any local hurricane victims. "The food truck will stay as long as needed and we have the help to run it," Allison Knight told the Red and Black.

This donation drive is not only for the National Honor Society members to participate in, but is an opportunity for all students at CHS to help out with this cause.

The society is also "partnering with the FSU softball team, Alpha Gamma Delta sorority on the Georgia college campus, and several other local organizations to make a greater impact."

Currently, Mexico Beach is trying to restore electricity within the next few weeks, and hopefully some businesses will be able to open back up for the community and locals.
