Two Eau Claire schools joined forces Friday to assist a Texas elementary school in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
Students at Northstar Middle School and Northwoods Elementary School participated in “Hats for Harvey” day, to benefit Mission Glen Elementary School in the Houston area. The Eau Claire students were encouraged to wear hats to school – which is normally prohibited – provided they have received a donation of at least $1 to aid the Texas school.
All proceeds of the fund-raising effort will be used to support families from Mission Glen school who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. The Texas school, which is in the Fort Bend Independent School District, enrolls students from kindergarten through 5th grade. It was adopted by the two Eau Claire schools in the wake of the hurricane.
