Students in Old Trail School’s Trail to Service middle school elective class led a community-wide collection of supplies for children impacted by Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas in late August.
Donations including school supplies, bottled water, paper products, clothing and more will be put to good use by the Houston Children’s Charity, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for Greater Houston’s underprivileged, abused and disabled children who have been otherwise left behind. The School also sent a check for $2,200 that reflects monetary donations to the project.
Old Trail School has a long history of uniting to provide assistance to others and the entire community – students, teachers, parents, alumni and friends of the School were active in this collection, filling a 16-foot Pod container that was shipped to Houston in early October.
Trail to Service students named the effort “Helping Houston Heal” and created a special logo for the project and a special fundraising t-shirt that they sold each morning at School. Parents also volunteered by receiving and organizing donations and packing the Pod.
