The Effingham County High School FBLA and the Fellowship of Christian Students joined forces with their “S-Drive.” The “S-Drive” was a community service project where both groups collected socks, sweats, shoes and soap for the Old Savannah City Mission. 
FBLA and FCS involved each homeroom class at ECHS and Effingham Career Academy and they were asked to bring items in for the “S-Drive.” The homeroom from ECHS and ECA that brought in the most would receive breakfast provided by both FBLA and FCS. 
Sara Huntley’s first period class brought in 208 items, which put them in first place and Deborah Lowe’s first period brought in 150 items. 
At Effingham Career Academy, Kimberly Larson’s class came in first place. Altogether the clubs collected 191 bars of soap, 75 pairs of socks, 70 pairs of shoes, and 111 sweat shirts/sweaters/coats, etc. 
Both Karen Waltz and Rebecca Doty, advisors for FBLA and FCS were pleased with the job the students did.
