BRUNSWICK -- Southeast Georgia residents are opening their hearts and wallets to help victims and their families after Tuesday's terrorist attacks.

A total of $9,600 in contributions had been raised in Glynn County by Sunday evening for the American Red Cross, said Cindy M. Perry, executive director for the county chapter.

Glynn County public school students are conducting various activities to help in the relief efforts. Students previously made red, white and blue ribbons, handmade flags and other patriotic items to display at the schools.

Principal Ed Turner of Brunswick High School said students had collected a total of $460 yesterday to kick off a two-week fund-raising drive to benefit the Red Cross.
