Students Respond to Hurricane Harvey


After witnessing the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey on the community of Houston and Southeast Texas, Student Council members at Ánimo Pat Brown Charter High School (APB) raised over a thousand dollars to donate to the United Way of Greater Houston, to help those impacted.

“In the past, student council’s Community Outreach Committee has organized toy drives and blood drives, and we’ve had students donate their hair to cancer patients, but never something like this,” recalled Amanda Garcia, APB Student Council instructor and English teacher. “Something where crisis relief is needed, you figure out how you can help, and that's what these students did.”
