The so-called “polar vortex” that brought sub-zero temperatures or wind chills to much of Georgia is gone, but when Jack Frost comes back again, a class of Bibb County public school kindergarteners will be ready. Macon pharmaceutical representative Hope Hahn Shields organized more than 40 friends on Facebook to donate winter weather gear for a class of 27 kids at Jesse Rice Elementary, a school in Macon’s Bloomfield neighborhood where nearly all of the students are poor enough to qualify for free or reduced price lunch.
We were so inspired by #NPRFrozenPaws that we decided to start our own photo campaign here at GPB. We got the party started with some cozy shots of pets from our GPB staff. How are your pets dealing with the record cold here in Georgia? Send us pictures on social media with the hashtag #GPBPolarPets.
