Jupiter High’s Student Government Association (SGA) is conducting two drives to benefit communities needing assistance. One is a Halloween SGA Costume Drive for kids at El Sol, and the other is a supply drive for those in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria.

Halloween Costume Drive

This event will be held from Sept. 25 to Oct. 31. SGA is asking for students and staff to donate costumes they no longer wear or want. The costumes will go to El Sol, Jupiter’s Neighborhood Resource Center, that is located at 106 Military Trail, on the southwest corner of Indiantown Road and Military Trail. SGA is asking for costume donations to be brought to room 4-217 before Halloween.

“The costumes donated will be brought there and will be chosen by children who can’t afford to purchase new costumes,” said junior Maggie Cameron, a member of SGA.

Puerto Rico Supply Drive

On Sept. 20, Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico leaving nearly the entire country without power. Homes were destroyed, and residents were left without water and supplies.

SGA is holding a donation for those impacted by Maria. All donations will be flown to Puerto Rico with the help of SGA member Adriana Melendez’s family friend.

“We are devoted to helping out the community and those in need with these projects. We are going to make sure that all of the supplies will make it to Puerto Rico. I personally know the woman who will be flying the supplies and she has family there too,” said Melendez, a sophomore whose family lives in Puerto Rico.

Supplies in high demand for Puerto Rico include fans, batteries, flashlights and battery/crank/solar power radios. They also need nonperishable foods, water and baby formula, along with towels, blankets, toilet paper, bandages, bug spray, soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes. Donations should be brought to room 4-217.
