Beaufort County Schools Get Donated Supplies To Help Post- Irene

Some students affected by Hurricane Irene are getting help from the kindness of another school system more than a hundred miles away.

Cumberland County Schools delivered a truck full of school supplies to Beaufort County's Central Office Tuesday morning, with students from Eastern Elementary and P.S. Jones Middle School helping to unload.

Beaufort County Superintendent Don Phipps says 4 schools had major damage from the hurricane, and says several families lost everything in the storm. Phipps says the supplies will be distributed to Beaufort County Schools Wednesday

    Isn't this what the educational lottery was for?

    What about helping Tyrrell County Schools? They still are not in their own buildings and lost alot more than Beaufort Schools did.

      Michelle, guit being such a negative ninny. Someone did something good for someone else. Can't that just be the focus here. Yes, Tyrrell County still needs help but you don't get to chose where others help. If you want to help Tyrrell Co, go ahead, I'm sure they would appreciate it.

        I agree with Susan, if you want to help Tyrrell Schools then work with the school to set something up. I don't understand why people whine instead of being proactive.

        I guess your superintendent didn't come from Cumberland County.
