collected a total of 1559 items (mostly paper products, hygiene items, and cleaning supplies).  James and his father, Mr. Eddie Adams also presented Safe Harbor with $3850.00 in monetary donations.  Thank you to all who donated items to this important cause.  

Former Solicitor Chrissy Adams may have succumbed to cancer several years ago, but thanks to her son James her support for Safe Harbor lives on. For several years running, James has asked his school community to join him in providing support for this worthy cause through a schoolwide donation drive. Between January 28th and February 22nd, students are asked to bring donation items to their 1st period class. The class which donates the most items will be rewarded with a pizza party.  Suggested items to donate include:
  • Paper towels
  • Toilet paper 
  • Dish soap 
  • Laundry detergent 
  • Paper plates 
  • Disposable gloves 
  • Composition notebooks 
  • Disposable cleaning cloths (Clorox wipes)
