Students and staff at Frenship High School are coming together to support a Texas community in need.
Brazoswood High School in Clute, Texas and Frenship High School share a similar student body size, student demographic, and test scores. However, Brazoswood High School is facing a unique challenge: the high school is serving an area that has been greatly affected by Hurricane Harvey.
In an effort to support the community of Clute and Brazoswood High School, Frenship High School is collecting gift cards for to send to south. These gift cards will allow members of the Clute community tor purchase necessities and replace items that have been destroyed by floods.
Frenship High School Student Council Members will be working with Brazoswood High School Student Council via Skype to coordinate the project. Even though Brazoswood will be on the receiving end of this project, their student body is ready to help.
According to Brazoswood principal Rita Pintavalle, flooding and evacuations have affected approximately one fourth of the school’s population.
“Our students can connect and make a HUGE impact on our affected areas. Our student body president is currently one of those students displaced for flooding, but he is still trying to find ways to organize students to help,” said Pintavalle via e-mail.
Members of the Frenship community can support this project during the first home football game on Friday, September 8th. The Frenship Care Buckets will be present and community members are welcome to donate to support Brazoswood High School.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to support our fellow Texans,” said Frenship High School teacher Kayci Smith.
“This will show students that our community isn’t just Wolfforth, America. Our community is bigger than that.”
