Diboll sending school supplies down south

DIBOLL, TX (KTRE) - Some people not only lost their home during Ike, kids and teachers lost their schools as well.

Now, a school supply drive is going on here in Angelina County to send supplies down south.

The Texas PTA president, Jan Wilkerson, lives in Angelina County.  She says the PTA is sending help to their affiliated schools on the coast, but Jan decided some other schools in High Island and Sabine Pass, needed help with supplies too.

"Since they are not a PTA, we can't give PTA funds to them, but they are still students and part of my family, and I wanted to make sure they were helped as much as any other schools that needed help," says Wilkerson.

They are collecting supplies, clothes and gifts for teachers and students.  The plan is to help these two schools from now through the holidays.  So far Jan says it's been a great success.

To donate supplies or money, call Jan Wilkerson at 936-635-4044, or stop by Office Depot in Lufkin October 6th.
