TKA Students Lead A School-Wide Effort To Help The Bahamas

TKA prefects spearheaded the student-led Bahamas Relief effort.

When King’s Academy students saw the great need of those affected by Hurricane Dorian, they stepped right up. From TKA’s youngest students in junior kindergarten to senior prefects, TKA students initiated a week-long hurricane relief effort, which resulted in a 26-foot truck being filled with much-needed items for the Bahamas.

First-grade students were excited to deliver their Bahamas Relief items, including hand-made cards. A fourth grader was moved with compassion by the situation in the Bahamas and donated a care package with a hand-written note to be included in the relief efforts. Coincidentally, two mothers who recently evacuated with their families from Marsh Harbor were on campus. The student was able to meet them and present them with her package in person.

“I am so incredibly proud of all the students who donated and organized the Bahamas Relief drive,” TKA Student Life Director Trisha Todd said. “They have spent hours sorting, boxing and loading an entire truck full of life necessities for those affected by Hurricane Dorian. It is encouraging to see how students demonstrated the love of Christ throughout this week.”

TKA is grateful to MJ TruckNation for the use of a truck to store and transport donated items to a receiving facility.
