Dublin school partners with local fraternity to donate water to Hurricane Harvey victims

DUBLIN, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – More supplies are on the way to Texas, thanks to students attending Moore Street School in Dublin.

Principal Brian Howell says,”The say it takes a village to raise a child and we want all the villages to come in and help us out anyway possible.”

In the time of need, the gift of giving is in the air. It’s another lesson for students.

“It shows their leadership qualities and also showing that they have the ability to humble themselves and care about other individuals and not just themselves,” Howell adds.

With the help of a local fraternity, Kappa Alpha Psi Inc., students were able to donate 100 cases of water to hurricane Harvey victims.

They gave out 50 cases to Sandy Ford Baptist Church and 50 to State Farm, who also contributed to those in need.

“I know a lot of the students in the community. They are real good students, they just need some guidance along the way and we feel an obligation to be apart of that for them to make sure they are headed in the right direction and doing some positive things,” says Clinton Lowther who is member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc.

The act of kindness creates a positive image for others.

“It feels like you’re in a role model state so it feels like other people are looking up to you donating this water so maybe other counties or such will donate water too,” twelfth grader Lavonte’ Grimes.

Eleventh grader Valencia Montgomery says, “It’s making me feel wonderful, you can help other people in need.”

Moore Street School participates in many other community events. The principal says the doors to the school are open to the entire community. His goal is to help create a bright future for the students.
