Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Five students and a teacher at Rice Creek Elementary were among the families displaced by last Sunday's fire at The Reserve at Lake Carolina apartments on Hardscrabble Road. These families have lost most or all of their belongings. While these students are not Gators, they are members of the larger Lake Carolina community and the LCE PTO would like to help them as they recover from this devastating event.

This Friday, February 3, we will partner with the Rice Creek Elementary PTO to collect spare change, cash, and checks (made payable to Rice Creek PTO) in the car rider lines on both sides of both campuses at morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. Look for volunteers holding signs and buckets for the collection. 

You may also send in donations with your child and teachers will collect them in homerooms.

The money will go directly to these families to help replace the items that were destroyed in the fire. Thank you in advance for your generosity and concern for our community!
