Families of Gatewood Schools collecting items for Hurricane Harvey victims

Gatewood parent Michelle Caricofe and Chip, Tammy and Brett Walker of Eatonton started a support program to gather goods for victims devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Pictured here gathering items at Gatewood's Friday night football game are Spivey Davis, Jordan Caricofe, Case McMichael, Lizzie and Gus Mendez. They will be collecting donations for the rest of September at Gatewood's home games, Farmers and Merchant Bank and Harmony Crossing Pet Resort. The campaign has already received over $1,500 in supplies in five days! They will continue the support as long as possible since the devastation is catastrophic. "Gatewood students, staff, families, alumni and friends truly care about fellow Americans and helpless victims in their time of need and throughout everyday life," Caricofe said in an email. “Please continue to pray for the victims and our efforts to support them. Thanks to all of the community that has already supported our efforts.” For more information on how to help, call Gatewood at 706-485-8231,
