Children from K.I. Jones Elementary emptied a cargo trailer Tuesday stacked with paper towels and other supplies to help Heather House.
Fifth-graders from the class taught by Michela Ward and Jennifer Jenness formed a human chain to hand the supplies from the trailer to representatives of the homeless shelter on Ohio Street.
“It’s really nice to help,” said Eli Hall, 10.
Ward said the assistance started in 2001 and involves the whole school contributing supplies to the shelter.
Parent Christ Cox has three children who have participated in the assistance over the years.
