Student Voices: Helping Hurricane Victims

Student Voices: Helping Hurricane Victims

National Presbyterian School is making kits for Presbyterian Disaster Assistance for people affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. The person in charge is Reverend Dunfee, the NPS Chaplain.

The families at NPS are donating notebooks, scissors, rulers, erasers, pencils, pencil sharpeners, and boxes of crayons. Also, we are making cloth bags to hold all of the supplies. Some people, including teachers, are making them at home. There is a special after school class that meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays for a couple weeks where kids can sew the bags too. Many teachers are helping sew the bags and assist the students. Their names are Mrs. Glass, Mrs. Woods, Mrs. Durbin, Mrs. Seeger, Ms. Williams, and, of course, Reverend Dunfee. The girl scouts are helping, too.

The kids are learning while helping so it's a cool project. Our goal as a school is to get 100 bags. Right now we have around 30, but a lot of people are helping and we are increasing fast.

NPS is glad to help people in need!
