Two Neenah fifth grade students enlisted the help of N&M Transfer Company to create a “Flood the Truck” event to aid victims in cleanup of the recent flooding in South Carolina.
The donation drive will take place on Mon., Oct. 12 from 6:30 a.m.-6 p.m. A 53-foot N&M Transfer semi trailer will be in front of Horace Mann Middle School on Oak Street. Anyone who would like to donate items may bring them during this time. Specific items needed include bottled water, hand sanitizer, work gloves, rubber gloves, masks, undergarments, rain slickers, toiletries, gift cards, blankets and large boxes.
Students Rachel Frank and Josephine Fisher, who are in the fifth grade magnet class at Horace Mann, developed the idea and organized the drive. N&M Transfer is donating the truck and the driver. The items will be donated to Irmo High School in Irmo, S.C.
Areas in South Carolina have been devastated by the floods, which could top more than $1 billion in damages. Some areas received as much as 17 inches in as many hours last Saturday.
N&M Transfer is a regional less than truckload carrier headquartered in Neenah. The company specializes in providing next day deliveries to all points with their direct service area.
