Brumley added that the response from parents and students had been nothing but positive.
“Last night there was a play going on at Southmoore and we had high schoolers come up to us and thank us,” she explained. “I thought they might think the helmets were dumb and not want to wear them, but they were so grateful for all our work. I also thought some people might say the helmets aren’t necessary, but everyone has been happy to have the additional protection.”
Nicole Harris’, volunteer and vice president of Briarwood Elementary PTA, son Zachary was also at Briarwood on May 20. Harris said there were a lot of unknowns in the beginning stages of planning but the delivery of helmets made everything worth the hard work.
“After that day (May 20) and I heard about the idea from Jennifer I knew I wanted to help,” Harris said. “Today’s gone really well. It’s been great to have so many volunteers and support.”
Additionally, All American Pizza and Chick-fil-a in Moore donated food to volunteers for the staging and delivery process.
