With the aftermath of Hurricane Irma wreaking havoc to the state of Florida, the Luxemburg-Casco school district is looking to help children affected by the hurricane by holding a one-week donation drive at the school. In partnership with the Hometown Heroes “Fluids4Florida” program, the Luxemburg-Casco schools are collecting supplies for children. Organizer Rebecca Beaumia shares what type of items are needed to “stuff a semi”.
Beaumia says she is working along with friends in the Grafton area to help Florida after Hurricane Irma. Relief efforts include drop boxes at all the Luxemburg-Casco School District buildings. Items needed include bottled water and personal hygiene products. The relief drive will conclude at half-time of the Luxemburg-Casco/Marinette football game in Luxemburg on Friday night with donations accepted starting at 5 p.m. in the parking lot.
