Brown reaches out to help Katrina victims

Eunisha Brown recently lent a helping hand in the Katrina disaster.


Eunisha Brown helped deliver items to victims.

"We collected everything from the beginning of September until the 23rd of September," said Eunisha. "We collected clothes, shoes, baby wipes, coloring books, toys, dog food, kites, paper, and other school items."

Eunisha was in charge of collecting the items, counting them, putting them in the display case, packing them up, and hand delivering the items. Eunisha, staff members of the McDuffie County School System and other community members went to Mississippi to deliver the items to the families and shelters. "We left on Oct. 22 and we came back on Oct. 23," Eunisha stated.

Upon visiting Mississippi, Eunisha was given the chance to see how life really is for the victims of Katrina.

"Seeing what those people were going through made me appreciate what I have and to not take anything for granted," said Eunisha.

Eunisha was able to experience first hand how much work is going to have to be done to fix everything that happened.

"When we went, they were still pumping water out of the schools and everything was so messed up. They were supposed to start school back at the beginning of September, but they couldn't. Everything that those people had is gone," Eunisha added.

Along with helping with the Katrina Aid, Eunisha also volunteers and has several other activities that she participates in including: Health Occupations, the Boys and Girls club, her church, tutoring other students, cleaning up the community, beautification projects, Owls Daycare, working at the school over the summer, Girl Scouts, 4-H, FBLA, French Club, Debate, and HOSA.

"I will help anybody who needs my help," Eunisha said, "and I would do it all again if given the chance."
