Daisy Bates Elementary School

A message from Principal Matt Mellor:

"We are collecting donations this Friday to help one of our families who was traveling home from north-west Arkansas when the storm crossed the interstate.  The tornado picked up their truck carried it across the interstate slamming them into the ground.  Both mother and daughter were rescued and transported to children's hospital.  They are fortunate and escaped with only heavy bruising and abrasions.  Their only vehicle was destroyed, the clothes they had taken with them to wash were also lost.  The daughter returned to school Wednesday in the only clothes she still has, the school uniform she was wearing during the tornado.

"We have been able to collect additional uniforms and clothing items and our teachers immediately began purchasing and supplying every day needs, groceries, clothing and support.  Our amazing team has even begun volunteering to take the family on errands and helping them find avenues to file insurance claims and additional recovery support.  I could not be more proud."
