Jackson Northwest School’s Give Hope Disaster Relief
Give Hope Disaster Relief trips began in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina hit, and were student driven. Since then, over 800 high school and college students and chaperones from Jackson County have travelled the country helping local and national charitable foundations in disaster areas. Over time, they have helped in a number of areas, including New Orleans and parts of Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Michigan, Illinois, Texas, and Florida. While on site, they help with debris removal and construction/reconstruction of homes. Their goal is to help in any way possible in an area of need. Many of their volunteers have dedicated years of their lives to helping others.
