Savannah Schools Giving Back
Savannah Schools are giving back to the community this holiday season.
From the High School down to Elementary, each school has a unique program designed by students and staff to help give back to others.
Amazonia Elementary School is hosting "Pennies for Patients" benefiting St. Judes and collecting pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House.
Helena Elementary is conducting a shoe drive for orphans and at the High School level many different groups and organizations have fundraisers and drives benefiting the Andrew County Food pantry.
Superintendent of schools David Brax says the lessons students are learning outside of the classroom are valuable.
Brax adds the staff at all Savannah Schools hold community outreach programs annually.
Each School in the Savannah district has also adopted families to sponsor for the holiday season.
