Lending a Helping Hand

By  | 

A Bryan elementary school is trying to help families displaced by last week's fire, at the Bryan Arms Apartments. Three of the families have children enrolled at Henderson Elementary.

Henderson is currently accepting donations of basic household items the families might need for their new homes. Things like silverware, cookware, pillows and blankets may be dropped off Friday at the Henderson Elementary front office.

Henderson students will also compete in a dollar day on Friday. The class who brings the most dollars will win a popcorn party Friday afternoon.

Henderson Elementary is located at 801 Matous Dr in Bryan. The front office can be reached at: (979) 209-1560.

Jane Long Middle School is also trying to help one of its own. The school is hosting a faculty-student basketball game tomorrow at 3.

The 30 minute game is open to the public. Admission is 1 dollar, with the proceeds going to a displaced family.
