A local industry has teamed up with a school to help raise funds aimed at re-filling a library with books lost in a summer blaze.

Georgia-Pacific is working to help raise funds for the Pollard-McCall Junior High School library after a fire during the summer completely destroyed the building and its contents. The interactive fundraiser gives area residents a chance to help with their efforts.

An online Titlewish fundraiser began Oct. 3 and will continue through Dec. 31, according to Jason Daniel, public affairs for Brewton’s GP facility.

“Every penny of the money raised for the school will go directly toward purchasing new materials for the library,” Daniel said. “It’s such a loss for the children We just hope everyone gets involved and helps out one of our community schools.”

The goal for this fundraising program is $5000.00. Parents and interested community members are encouraged to help Pollard-McCall Junior High School Library by visiting and clicking the “Donate” button.
