Shields Students “Stuff the Bus” for Hurricane Harvey and Irma Victims
Throughout the week of September 18-22, Shields students and staff were collecting items for families in Florida and Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma. The Lewes Fire Company approached Principal Nauman about partnering with them to collect items and without hesitation; Mrs. Nauman, Assistant Principal Mrs. Corbidge, and Ms. Davis, a 5th Grade teacher at Shields, made it happen. Mr. Reese, Chief Custodian at Shield’s Elementary School donated his bus and his time to drive the items collected to God’s Way in Milford, who then is going to divide the donations and distribute them to Texas and Florida.
Students from Mrs. Davis’s 5th grade classroom, a long with one other student from each classroom at each grade level, all helped bring the donation items out to the bus. In addition to stuffing the school bus with various items, a Cape Henlopen School District box truck, and a School District pick-up truck were also filled with clothing donations, and cases of water.
Thank you to all of the students, families, and community members who took time to drop off donations throughout the week. We couldn’t have done it without you!
