When Hampton Bays Middle School teacher Kristin Webber taught her eighth graders about the after effects of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, her students were inspired to help.
Assisted by Webber, the eighth graders researched organizations that were collecting donations and decided on Bahamastrong of Miami, Florida. They began their drive for canned goods, first aid supplies and other needed items by placing collection boxes throughout their school.
So far, the students have collected 118 boxes, which they will soon be sending to Bahamastrong.
