Students Raised $722.72 for Hurricane Harvey Relief

After Hurricane Harvey ravaged Texas last September, and later Hurricane Irma made US landfall as well, students at The Learning Center Charter School were moved to help. They started a penny drive to raise funds to send to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston.

Over the course of the school year, students raised $722.72, mostly in the form of pennies, to benefit hurricane victims.

“Our students stepped up in a big way and I couldn’t be prouder,” said Mary Jo Dyre, Executive Director of the school. “These kids saw a need and decided to do something about it!”
