The Rocky Bayou Christian School football team, coached by Josh Childers, took supplies directly to Robert F. Munroe Day School in Quincy, with those supplies assisting families affiliated with the school.
The RBCS volleyball team also took money to North Florida Christian School in Tallahassee. After the match, the team helped the NFCS volleyball coach, whose house was damaged by Hurricane Michael.
With its four high schools supporting the Walton School District’s Stuff the Bus for Hurricane Michael victims, Walton High School Coach Matt Nichols was able to make the district’s first delivery of supplies to Calhoun County.
WHS’s Student Council coordinated, sorted and organized the donations, while Nichols and his boys basketball team delivered the donations to a designated site.
