Character Education

Hurricane Helpers

October 23

Recent hurricanes left paths of destruction in the Carolinas and the Florida panhandle. The needs remain great in these communities, but here are a few CDS students making a difference. Well done, CDS families!

Two students joined with their family in delivering hurricane supplies to Lumberton, North Carolina. It was a 14-hour day with three supply drops at different locations. They were featured in a story on ABC News 4 on September 25.

Another student and her father cooked 200 pounds of barbecue and spent Saturday, September 29 in Georgetown county serving lunches to Hurricane Florence relief workers and people displaced by the hurricane. Then they gathered a “wish list” from a relief center and went shopping to fulfill the needs! 

A brother and sister went with family and friends to help deliver about 300 bags of clothing, and many loads of food and supplies.

The Sunday Supper featured two CDS fifth graders on Facebook who hosted a lemonade stand to benefit Hurricane Florence victims. In one afternoon they earned $86.20, including a donation from a City of Charleston Police Department officer who purchased lemonade for tourists passing by. The good work was inspired by the character education taught at Charleston Day!
