Roland Grise students organize donation drive

WILMINGTON -- Two weeks of hard work paid off for Roland Grise students yesterday morning. They dropped off more than two hundred bags filled with toiletries at the Salvation Army. The student government association has been working hard to collect personal hygiene items for those in need. Students say collecting and assembling the donations was gratifying. SGA Vice President Nicole Goldfarb said, "We had like, soap and brushes and lotion all in different containers and everyone just took a bag and they went around and they picked up one of each and they put it in their bag." SGA President William Yelton said, "We hope to make this community better, even though the SGA is made up of kids, we can still make a difference in our community." Students were also given a tour of the Salvation Army to learn about the organization and the people who benefit from their work. The student government association started the program. They say they hope the program continues next year.
