The Orange Beach Elementary School sixth grade Peer Helpers organized and handled a one day Toys for Tots Drive. We collect over 400 toys for needy children and donated them to Toys for Tots and Sacred Heart Hospital. The toys for Sacred Heart were delivered by the Gulf Shores High School Peer Helpers.

The Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation is partnering with the Baldwin County Board of Education, the Baldwin County District Attorney’s Office, the Baldwin County Mayor’s Association and the Baldwin County Commissioners on their “STOP the BULLYING” outreach project, sponsored by the Cox Family Foundation. The project encourages high school and middle school students to create a video to illustrate the song, “You Had to Pick on Me,” by country singer/songwriter Matt Kennon. Students may create videos individually or as part of a group. Winning videos will be selected from two middle schools and two high schools, each of which will receive a free concert by Kennon and inspirational speaker Troy McClain (featured on “The Apprentice”). Peer Helpers from schools across Baldwin County will assist with an additional component of the program, a public concert to be held on Thursday, March 14. The STOP the BULLYING outreach program is designed to change the culture of acceptance and convey the message that bullying must not be tolerated in our community.
