Starting Wednesday, the Parent Teacher Student Association at Madeira Beach Fundamental School will be collecting donations for Plaza Towers Elementary School, which was demolished by the recent tornado in Moore, Okla.
The PTSA is looking for new or gently used backpacks, as well as school and art supplies, cash, gift cards, new clothing and blankets. Donations can be dropped off in front of the school cafeteria May 29-31 and June 3-5, from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The school is at 591 Tom Stuart Causeway in Madeira Beach.
Several businesses also are collecting donations for the drive, including: Square 1 Burgers at 3942 Tyrone Blvd. in St. Petersburg, Winn-Dixie at 15200 Municipal Dr. in Madeira Beach and Crystal Nail Spa at 1446 66th St. N in St. Petersburg.
