Several students and staff a Sevier County High School in the Great Smoky Mountains experienced a tragedy in form a wildfires in Tennessee. Sponsored by the Talawanda-Butler Tech FCCLA chapter, the Talawanda Braves are adopting this school and the families effected by this tragic event to try and help them get back on their feet, have clothes to wear and have a Christmas they would not otherwise get to have. We are challenging each club in the school to adopt a family and get a list with specifics of what they need. We also challenge each student to donate at least one item to the families that have lost so much. Plus we are asking the Greater Oxford Community to help as well. You can bring donations to Room 611 or we will be having several donation collections. Items will be delivered directly to the Sevier County High School on December 22nd. Please see Mrs Gregory or Braelynn Wagers for more details.
