Memorial Drive students donate to House of Hope

Memorial Drive Elementary School recently donated hygiene and canned food items to the House of Hope, a local charity that offers emergency assistance to the Waycross community.  During the month of January, students brought in needed items, and the winning homeroom was awarded a pizza party. Bringing in the most items this year was Mrs. Trina Dill's first grade class. Students from her class are shown (l-r), Daksh B., Huck H., Gauge K., Kylee G., Katelynn Y., Maimoona K., and Karsyn D., along with Mrs. Tiffany Warren, counselor and coordinator of this event, and Mrs. Adela Davis, member of Trinity United Methodist Church and volunteer of the House of Hope.
