School Supplies for Texas Students
On Aug. 25, 2017 Hurricane Harvey made a direct hit to Texas. Harvey, a Category 4 storm, devastated a large portion of Texas, leaving a large path of destruction behind. The state of Texas, working to get their students back in school as quickly as possible, knew the need for school supplies was urgent.
McKenzie students, wanting to help with this need, started collecting school supplies, and with only a few days to collect until the truck bound for Texas was scheduled to leave, local students collected enough supplies to fill a van, leaving only enough room for the driver. They collected paper, pencils, folders, notebook markers, and backpacks, as well as some blankets, diapers and personal items.
