Help needed for Shop with a Yellow Jacket

THOMASVILLE — Preparations for Thomas County Central High School’s Shop with a Yellow Jacket event have begun.

The event, known as SWAYJ, is scheduled for Dec. 14. SWAYJ is an annual event when TCCHS student volunteers raise funds and take younger kids from feeder schools Christmas shopping.

“SWAYJ embodies what TCCHS is all about, altruism and family,” said Regina Beasley, TCCHS teacher and event coordinator.

Volunteers are still needed to help with the event. The deadline to register is Monday, but late forms and money will be accepted until Thursday.

“TCCHS would like to encourage all students and faculty to dig deep and help us continue to serve the families of Thomas County,” Beasley said.

To participate in SWAYJ, students need to make a team of four or five people and raise $100 for their group. Once the group has done so, it must complete a sign-up form, to be picked up from Mrs. Beasley.

Students unable to get a team together can still help by doing such tasks as taking pictures or even giving money.

“No volunteer will be turned down,” Beasley said.

“By volunteering, you will feel like a better person and when you see the kids and the smiles on their faces  (it) makes the time spent worthwhile,” Matthew Prather, TCCHS student and past event participant, said.

For more information, contact Mrs. Beasley at or call 225-5050, ext. 189.
