Heritage comes together to help Hurricane Ian victims

in News by

Hurricane Ian swept through Southwest Florida in late September, devastating the region and leaving many towns in complete disarray. More than 100 people lost their lives in the storm. Data suggests that reparations may cost up to $67 billion.

In order to help, Heritage is hosting a supply drive for upper and lower school students to donate.

Upper school students may receive up to nine hours of community service. Students must print out this form and attach it to the donations if they want to receive hours. 

Heritage volunteer staff and upper school students will help deliver the supplies from the drive.

For lower school students, the first collection will be due Wednesday, Oct. 19. Parents may drop off the items in the lower school office or in the morning car line. (Graphic/American Heritage)
