Albany High students ask community to 'give a sheet' for flood relief

ALBANY, N.Y. (Oct. 19, 2011) -- Albany High School seniors Wesley Pluviose-Philip and Jacquan Williams are inviting the community to join the “Albany High Gives a Sheet” campaign to help bring much-needed relief to flood victims in the Schoharie Valley.

 

"Many communities in our area suffered tremendous losses in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene. You can assist in their recovery efforts by donating a set of new bed sheets (flat, fitted, pillow case), a “bed-in-a-bag” or a comforter, or by making a monetary donation of $20 or more," Williams said.

 

The first 100 donors will receive a free "Albany High Gives a Sheet" T-shirt.

 

"Let’s come together and show everyone that the Albany Falcons are here to help others that are less fortunate," Pluviouse-Philip said.

 

Pluviose-Philip and Williams (pictured at right with City School District of Albany 2011 Hall of Fame inductee Sal Villa '65 -- that's Wesley on the left and Jacquan on the right) are students in Albany High's prestigious International Baccalaureate program as well as accomplished athletes.

 

Donations can be made by Monday, Oct. 31. Donations can be dropped off at Albany High's main office, 700 Washington Ave., or in any of the school’s four academy offices. Please be sure to leave your name and contact information when the donation is dropped off.

 

Donations by check to: Schoharie County Community Action Program, Inc.

 

For more information contact: Albany High Leadership Academy Theme Coordinator Leslie Hatfield at lhatfield@albany.k12.ny.us or (518) 454-3987, ext 474.
