The Crossett High School JAG (Jobs for America’s Graduates) class is trying to “clean-up Florida” by collecting bars of soap. The goal is to collect 2,000 bars of soap to donate to areas damaged by Hurricane Michael.
The soap drive began Oct. 24 and will end on Nov. 7.
The club’s community service vice president is senior Rachel Henry.
“Initially we were going to send toothbrushes but then we thought that since Florida is dirty because of the hurricane, we would send soap,”Henry said.
This fundraiser will count as hours toward the club’s community service requirement. Each JAG student must perform 10 hours of community service as a part of the program requirements.
CHS students are encouraged to bring soap by being rewarded with being able to have their phones out at lunch. Anyone who would like to donate soap to the effort may drop it off at CHS.
