Santa Rosa students deliver donations for schools impacted by Harvey

Posted: Updated:

The Education Service Center, Region 2 (ESC-2), received a delivery of school supplies collected by students from Santa Rosa ISD in an effort to provide some assistance and relief to the students of Region 2 schools that were impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

According to Ms. Rebecca Corpus, Santa Rosa High School Principal, the idea to coordinate a collection for Hurricane Harvey impacted schools came from their Board of Trustees, calling the initiative Students Helping Students; and the Business Professionals of America (BPA) students were heavily involved in the facilitation of the supply drive in their local community.

They sent out flyers to the community and placed collection boxes at their school stadium during football games. The collection began in early September and was expected to only last a week or so; but the donations kept coming in and students continued to collect supplies and materials.

“We announced at school that the BPA students were headed to Corpus Christi,” said Ms. Corpus. “The English teachers worked this into their lesson plan about why the students felt it was important to help one another.  I was happy that we can come together and make a difference even as a small community.

The kindness and compassion these students show every day to one another shined through, and they wanted to help even though they’d never know who would receive these supplies. Look at the difference these kids are making.”  

The students arrived at the ESC-2 downtown facility, where regional schools have designated donations be sent as there is limited space for the school supplies and materials, on Thursday, October 5th in a Santa Rosa ISD school bus filled with boxes of notebooks, notebook paper, binders, folders, pens, pencils, crayons, scissors, pencil sharpeners, backpacks, facial tissue, hand soap and sanitizer, and many other miscellaneous necessities for school.

Ms. Mary Diaz and Ms. Bertha Mireles, both student advisors, accompanied the students to the drop-off location.  The schools supplies that have been donated will be distributed to those with the greatest need.

The ESC-2 is working with each impacted local education agency (LEA) and their leadership to identify the recipients.
