ABSTRACT
The article reports that at Ford Elementary School in Acworth, Georgia, pupils are collecting large plastic containers that they call "Tubs of Love," filled with first-aid supplies, nonperishable food, diapers, trinkets such as hair bows, and handwritten notes from the students. Children in the school's student-run Community Outreach Committee decided to launch the Tubs of Love campaign after learning that a family at the school had relatives in Mississippi who lost their homes during the hurricane. Rather than send financial contributions, the students opted for the personalized care packages, which have been assembled and decorated by students in every grade at the 995-pupil K-5 school.
