Hurricane Harvey Relief

September 14, 2017

Our students and their families went into action to support the Houston residents who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey! Over the course of 5 days, we collected two full bus loads of supplies including 10 cases of water, tons of baby formula & diapers, mountains of paper products, a wheelchair and crutches, and tons of food! Our students also wrote letters of encouragement for those impacted as part of this service project. It is truly an example of what we can do when we all work together to help those in need. Thank you for your generous donations and WAY TO GO!!
