For the second year in a row the Windsor-Essex region experienced widespread flooding resulting in thousands of flooded basements. Also, for the second year in a row, students from Essex District High School teamed up the international relief agency, Samaritan’s Purse, to provide desperately needed relief to victims of the flooding. Twenty four students made the trip accompanied by three staff members.
The students helped with all aspects of this effort for three different Windsor area homes including the removal of furniture and appliances, carpet and flooring, garbage, drywall, paneling and insulation. They worked very hard and represented both the board and their school extremely well while showing compassion and respect to each of the families.
Transportation for this effort was graciously donated by the Stevenson Transport.
Yet again, the students at EDHS step up and “Make a Difference” in the lives of people in our community.
