With Winter coming up and many families still displaced after the storm, the need for warm clothing is much needed.
Now Bay District Schools are taking it into their own hands to raise these items for families and students in need.
Bay District Schools Spokeswoman, Sharon Michalik, says the district has already given out 3,000 jackets to elementary school students.
They just received a donation from the Ironman Foundation for $30,000 to purchase jackets for middle and high school students as well.
“Students will be able to take the food home themselves if they are able to do that or their mom or grandma can come get the food. But it’s for all Bay District School students, so the student will have to be actively enrolled in one of our schools then they can access what’s in the pantry,” said Michalik.
They expect to start giving these food donations to families beginning in December.
