CR South Sophomore Coordinates Hurricane Sandy Food Drive

A Council Rock High School South sophomore, Samantha Folz, coordinated donations for those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

A Council Rock South sophomore orchestrated a food drive for victims of Hurricane Sandy at local grocery stores on Saturday, Nov. 3.

Samantha Folz, 15, planned a food drive at three area grocery stores, to collect goods to send to people in New Jersey. Folz had friends and family, and trucks from her father's business, at Superfresh, McCaffrey's and Thriftway Shop N Bag.

"When people went in the store they were given a flier and then they came out and were putting stuff on the truck," John Folz told Patch.

He said that his daughter's drive filled three box trucks and raised $500 to purchase bedding and toiletries.

All of the donations will be sent to Ocean City, NJ's "Cleanup and Recovery Effort" project, also known as CARE.

Rachel Burk, Chelsea Perkins, Kaitlyn Folz, Riley Connolly, Kyra Folz and Paige Lowenthal helped Samantha, as well as employees from her father's National Maintenance & Build Out Company.
