Dr. Cricket Meehan came up with the idea of having Ohio students send letters to offer compassion and encouragement to students their age in the hurricane zones. The CSBMHP connected with various Ohio schools to collect the letters, package them, and send them to the impacted schools who indicated that they would like to receive letters for their students.
