The Hurricane Harvey relief fund is coming to an end; approximately $4,900, 800 backpacks, and various toiletry items and school supplies were donated to Hardin-Jefferson ISD on Friday afternoon.

Student Council members loaded the items into a truck and a trailer owned by Cipriano Hernandez, father of student body service officer David Hernandez. Cipriano and his son volunteered to drive the load of supplies to Hardin-Jefferson High School in Sour Lake, Texas.    

“When we got there, we pulled up to the side and saw some construction workers putting up some portables to have students go into and learn,” David said. “We were greeted by 20 to 30 students who were waiting to help unload. The teachers came out and some of them started crying because they were so happy.”

While the last of the donations were shipped off, StuCo created another attempt to raise more money by selling T-shirts for $5 each.

“The T-shirts say ‘Deepen Your Heart Texas’ and they’re currently available in the school store,” David said. “The proceeds of those shirts will go toward getting more backpacks or just in general raising money.”

Though the relief fund has ended, both districts ultimately benefit from the donations.

“We saw the adviser on Sunday and she did nothing but melt down and cry and she was so very grateful that we did this to help her and her district out,” StuCo adviser Daniel Moser said. “Who knows, one day we may need something here, and so I think this fund betters our environment, our school and everybody as a whole.”
