Heritage Students Help Hurricane Victims
Student Council members at Peninsula Heritage School just concluded a two-week clothing drive for Houston, TX residents suffering from Hurricane Harvey.
The students packed 12 large boxes of clothing for babies to adults, which will be shipped to the affected area.
“I felt sad about the people in Houston who were affected by Hurricane Harvey,” relates Dylan, a Student Council member. “I wanted to help, and I feel happy about what we did.”
What the students did was quite significant. Families of Peninsula Heritage students contributed significant amounts of new and gently used clothing and shoes. Mr. Patrick Nguyen, owner of ICDI, Inc. and husband of Student Council advisor Wendy Nguyen, donated new shoes and covered the cost of shipping the clothing to Houston.
A former Peninsula Heritage administrator now resides in one of the hard-hit areas of Houston, and she shared with Mrs. Nguyen the urgent need for clothing for all ages. The school’s donations will be received and dispersed in the affected neighborhoods of the city along with written notes and heart-felt good wishes from the children at Peninsula Heritage School.
