The Hubbard School District is collecting items to send to families in Moore, Okla. affected by last week’s tornado.

School officials have been in contact with the Oklahoma School Board Association to coordinate the effort.  The district is collecting personal hygiene items, bottled water, non-perishable foods and school supplies. Volunteers want to stress they are not collecting clothing for this drive.

PI&I Trucking in Hubbard is donating the trailer to haul the items to Oklahoma.

“I feel confident that we’ll have the trailer fully loaded,” said Hubbard School Treasurer Rhonda Baldwin-Armorganos. “With the outpouring of people that are coming in and wanting to donate, I think that we’ll have it full.”

Items can be dropped at the Roosevelt Gym on School Road in Hubbard through June 9.
