CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham High School community saw all the devastation from the recent hurricanes and Kiera Spadaro, advisor for the CHS Key Club, and assistant adviser Christina Ervin, immediately took action.

*The Chatham High School Key Club is over 300 students strong and I knew that with the backing of our members, along with the support of the amazing Chatham community, we could really make a difference for hurricane victims by running a supply drive like this," Spadaro said. "Working with You Give Goods and MAP International was the perfect fit for us and we are so proud to have taken part in hurricane relief efforts together." 

After collecting over 3,100 items online with the help of YouGiveGoods, the CHS Key Club got together Thursday to put together 245 Disaster Health Kits - each kit containing basic personal care items needed by people displaced from their homes and forced into shelters after the hurricanes. Items in each kit included a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, body lotion, deodorant, soap, washcloth, personal hand wipes, a comb and bandaid.

The MAP International Disaster Health Kits represent the most immediate need to prevent the spread of sickness following disasters. MAP also supplies prescription and non-prescription medications that are in high demand after disasters like Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, and many of these items must be purchased. MAP is highly rated each year by watchdog organizations like the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance, Charity Navigator, CNBC and Forbes magazine. 

The 245 kits will be en route to MAP International's distribution center in Georgia, where they will be packaged and sent on to disaster sites most in need.
