FFA Students Collect Supplies for Victims of Hurricane Laura
Posted on 09/11/2020
This is the image for the news article titled FFA Students Collect Supplies for Victims of Hurricane Laura BISD Future Farmers of America (FFA) students started a campaign to collect supplies for Hurricane Laura victims. Recently, both the Brazoswood and Brazosport FFA Officer teams gathered supplies to help those in Louisiana who were impacted by Hurricane Laura. They were successful in collecting a trailer load of supplies and dropping it off with Manvel FFA for delivery. 
 
Because this was met with such an overwhelming response by those wanting to contribute and give back, the officers have decided that they would like to team up both chapters for another round of donations from September 14-25, 2020. 
 
Current needs are items like gas cans, bottled water, non-perishable foods and food for pets and livestock, however, any and all donations will be accepted. Students can drop off items with our high school ag teachers and there will be trailers set up at Brazosport High (student parking lot along N Brazosport Blvd in Freeport) and Brazoswood (CTE Building across from the high school). Community members can drop-off items between 3-5:00 PM weekdays through Friday, September 25. If these times do not work with you schedule, please contact Lauren White at Brazoswood lauren.white@brazosportisd.net or MaKenzy Mulder at Brazosport makenzy.mulder@brazosportisd.net and they can set-up a time to meet for drop off donations. 
 
Contacts in Louisiana said it will be mid-October before they begin to see electricity come back to their homes and businesses. The FFA team stated they felt called to give back, as they could have easily been the victims of Hurricane Laura, which could have been similar to Hurricane Harvey three years ago. They want to encourage everyone to be generous to others in their time of need. This is an important life lesson we can teach our students right now. 
 
We are so grateful for students who lead by example with servant hearts and show what it means to be BISD Family!
