Local eighth grader Spencer Capozello recently organized a donation drive at his school, Warren-Walker Middle School. He collected school supplies for students in Houston, TX affected by Hurricane Harvey. The storm, which hit Texas in late August, destroyed many homes and left many students without their personal possessions, including the supplies they needed for the upcoming semester.

When the semester began at Warren-Walker Middle, Spencer rallied his fellow students, faculty, and families to collect over 230 pounds of supplies, which were then shipped to the Houston Independent Unified School District to help the 218,000 students in the district. The supply totals included 878 pencils, 320 colored pencils, 392 markers, 740 crayon packs, 192 pencil sharpeners, 47 notebooks, and much more.
