Chestatee High School and its feeder schools are collecting supplies for victims of the Louisiana flooding.

The high school has a goal of collecting enough to fill a 53-foot trailer by Friday. Six schools are part of the collection effort. The trailer is parked in front of Chestatee High School.

The Chestatee football team will go to the schools — Chestatee Academy and Sardis, Lanier, Lyman Hall and McEver elementary schools — Thursday to pick up the supplies and return them to the high school for packaging.

Items may be dropped off at any of the schools during school hours.

Cleaning supplies, toiletry items, pet kennels and food, nonperishable food items, baby food and bottles, sippy cups and school supplies are requested.

Suzanne Jarrard, principal at Chestatee High, said Robert Wilson, Lyman Hall principal, suggested the collection idea.
