KENILWORTH, NJ – Two classes at Harding School worked together to deliver two boxes of school supplies to a school in need in Houston, TX.

The fundraiser was set up after the school met a Houston teacher on Pinterest.

“When the hurricane hit Houston, students in Mrs. Jernigan’s class and Mrs. Goger’s class took action,” Superintendent Dr. Thomas Tramaglini wrote in his weekly roundup. “We connected with a teacher, Ms. Swisher, in Houston through Pinterest.”

After Swisher sent the teachers a list of needs for her classroom, the students and their families collected two boxes of supplies including crayons plastic bags, cleaning wipes, paper and more.

The supplies were shipped by the Harding PTO to KIPP Academy Middle School in Houston this week.
