COAL GROVE — People who have been affected by recent flooding in the area can drop by the Coal Grove campus of Collins Career Technical Center on Saturday for a little help.

Students in the nursing program have been collecting cleaning supplies for about two weeks, Sandy Best, registered nursing instructor said, and they will be distributing them from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

“Our nursing students came up with the idea for care baskets, containing bleach, trash bags and other items,” she said.
