GRANDVIEW They hoped they’d get 500 items for their mission to help students impacted by the Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
Instead, the Middle School AVID class, which began collecting school supplies on Sept. 25, shipped more than 1,700 items.
The supplies were shipped in a total of 50 boxes to the 1,000-student body attending Humble Middle School.
The students collected pencil pouches, paper, dividers with pockets, pencils and pens.
Supplies can be sent to school with GMS students or dropped off in the GMS office. The students have set a goal to collect 500 items, which would provide half of the students at Humble Middle School with one of the supplies they need.
