JACKSON SOLOMON | BULLHORN STAFF Three Guilford County schools were affected by the April 15 tornado that touched down near Greensboro.

One of the three schools, Hampton Elementary, was completely torn apart and teachers lost all of their school supplies. Now Roxboro Community School’s (RCS) seventh grade math teacher Heather Lewis announced a donation drive inspired by a friend who teaches at one of the affected schools.

When asked her expectations for this donation drive, Lewis responded, “I would like to get enough for at least one classroom to be prepared next year.”

Currently only RCS is participating in the donation drive. Other schools may participate as well. Lewis says that she would like to see that, and other schools are welcome to bring their donations to RCS. Administrators support the drive, according to middle school Principal Donna Ingram. This is because of RCS’s mission to help give back to the com- munity, said Ingram.

Those who want to donate should bring in a pencils, paper, markers, crayons, scissors, glue, and sticky notes. Children’s books are welcome too, because Hampton’s library was destroyed as well. Money and Dollar Tree gift cards are also being accepted.
