Althea Engman, president of the SBA at Simon Sanchez, explains why they started the drive. "Some families have lost their jobs or their only source of income. Small businesses that used to thrive are now struggling and we just wanna come together as a community because that's what Guam's all about. We are family-oriented and I just feel like we need to come together and spread the love," Engman said.

A student organization is organizing a donation drive to help those who are affected by the pandemic.

The Simon Sanchez High School Student Body Association has put together a “necessity drive” to share the love by giving back to the community during the holiday season.

The drive began last week and will continue through December 1st.

Items accepted are non-perishable food, pre-packaged goods, sealed boxes of medical masks, gloves, alcohol bottles, and sprays.

In an interview with PNC, Althea Engman, president of the SBA at Simon Sanchez, explains why they started the drive.

“Some families have lost their jobs or their only source of income. Small businesses that used to thrive are now struggling and we just wanna come together as a community because that’s what Guam’s all about. We are family-oriented and I just feel like we need to come together and spread the love,” Engman said.

Donations can be dropped off at the front gate of the Simon Sanchez High School campus in Yigo every Friday from 8 am to 12 pm.

When dropping off donations, the Sharks remind you to wear your mask at all times.
