It all starts with one person, one lending hand, and one kind heart. After Hurricane Harvey destroyed much of south Texas, KHS students all found ways to lend a hand.

Senior Hailey Crowell reached out to principal Amy Keith to see if there was anything KHS could do to help with the disaster. They then set up a partnership with World Vision to have a loading truck come gather supplies donated and take it to where it’s needed.

Students brought supplies needed including personal hygiene items, canned food, and even dog food. Crowell loves dogs and felt the need to include them in her efforts to help.

“I’m in love with dogs, they’re the sweetest little loving things ever and it makes my heart happy when I see a dog getting the love and support they deserve,” Crowell said.

The KHS cheerleaders also lended a hand, selling  “We Are Texas Strong” T-shirts to help out with the disaster. The cheerleaders revealed at a pep rally that they raised $4,185 to aid the victims of Hurricane Harvey. The money went to the Houston Food Bank and Rockport-Fulton Good Samaritans.

The Kaufman FFA took up donations of various goods to aid with hurricane relief. They took up things such a toiletries, basic necessities, baby wipes, and other infant supplies and sent them to Houston and shelters in Dallas.

The FFA also partnered with other FFA district members in a joint effort to aid the victims of the hurricane. Senior Noah Yeldell and other district members teamed up and wanted to do what they could to help their fellow Texans.

Yeldell said: “I’m proud to be a Texan, I’d do anything to help out fellow Texans in need.”
