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!”
