Memphis City Schools establish Hurricane Disaster Relief fund

MCS has established a Hurricane Disaster Relief fund to aid these families
through the many local charitable organizations that are directly helping
them. The MCS Hurricane Disaster Relief  account is now established at Tri
State Bank. You can send your contribution to:

MCS Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund
Memphis City Schools
Attn: Vince McCaskill or Delores Brown
2597 Avery Ave., Room 208
Memphis, TN 38112

Checks should be made payable to:  "MCS Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund."
You can also drop off  your contribution at Tri State Bank, but please
indicate that you are giving to the "MCS Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund."

Memphis City Schools will now begin a Hurricane Relief Supply Drive. We are
collecting school supplies and new school uniforms for displaced school-age
children who will enroll in Memphis City Schools. We now have a truck
parked at central office (2597 Avery Ave.) to collect and store the donated
items. If you or your school would like to donate any of these items,
please bring them to this location. It is our goal to fill up the truck.
