Rhea County High School has adopted Dickinson High School, one of the hardest hit areas of Houston, TX by Hurricane Harvey.
Members of the Rhea County High School Student Council, JROTC, Key Club, and Yearbook organized a two day bake sale in order to raise money for the school. Many students, faculty, and staff provided all types of baked goods for this worthy cause to be held Sept. 7-8.
Also, there will be donation stations set up at the gates during tomorrow night’s home football game for a school supply drive. Basic school supplies such as backpacks, notebooks, paper, pens, and pencils will collected.
Monetary donations are welcome as well and will go towards the purchase of supplies for Dickinson High.
Below is a message from one of the principals of Dickinson High School in response to our offer to adopt their school:
“This is such an appreciated offer! We were told today that our school won’t resume until Sept 11. We have the majority of our students who have lost much or all. We know they will not have supplies so basic backpacks and contents like a binder, notebook paper, pens and pencils would be a huge blessing. Thank you so much. This will be such a blessing for our community,” Dickinson High School Principal Leone Clark.
