Get ready all you Gamecock and Tiger Fans! Our Annual Clemson/Carolina Food Drive kicked off on November 8 and will run through November 22. We are collecting all canned goods and nonperishable items that will be donated to a local food closet to be distributed to children in our community. Last year, we collected 1,395 items. Our goal this year is to exceed last year's total, and reach 1,400 items. The food drive is another great opportunity for us to help our children gain a better understanding of Citizenship. We hope you will send in items and join Team Langford! Items can be sent in with your child or members of the community can drop off items in our front office. Together, we can make a difference.
Langford students have come together with a heart to help the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. During breakfast, students and our school counselor, will be set up to receive donations. For $2.00, students will receive handmade bracelets made by classmates. All donations will be sent to One America Appeal.
We are very proud of the generous actions and the responsibility our young Labs are showing. Thank you for your support in their fundraising effort.
What is the One America Appeal?
The One America Appeal is a joint appeal that was originally launched by all five living former American Presidents to encourage their fellow citizens to support recovery efforts from Hurricane Harvey — which inundated the Texas Gulf Coast with unprecedented flooding. This special appeal has been expanded to include areas most affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
If I make a donation today, where does my money go?
All donations made today will go to help victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Irma in Florida. In Texas, monies will go to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund focusing on the greater Houston region, and the Rebuild Texas Fund assisting communities across the state. In Florida, monies will go to the Florida Disaster Fund, which is the state’s official private fund to assist the state’s communities as they respond to and recover from destructive storms. In the Caribbean, donations will be distributed to Unidos Por Puerto Rico Launched by the office of First Lady Beatriz Rosselló together with private sector coalition; and the Fund for the Virgin Islands which was established 25 years ago by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands for relief efforts.
