Hurricane Harvey continues to devastate parts of Texas. A birds-eye view of the damage shows the full impact of the storm.
We checked in with NBC News Radio's Taylor Millard for the latest from Texas.
Highland Prep is looking to collect 100,000 bottles of water for residents caught in Hurricane Harvey's path, as well as water for first responders. Drinkable water is scarce following an event of this magnitude.
Our Student Body Officers met today at lunchtime to organize the school’s efforts and coordinate donations from Madison Highland Prep. Tim Kane, our World History teacher, reached out to several relief organizations to help transport the water to the locations where it is needed most. “We are big on promoting global citizenship with our students,” Kane said. “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to help students look at events bigger than themselves.”
Highland Prep Schools will begin collecting cases of 16-20 ounce water bottles on Wednesday, August 30. Water bottles may be dropped off at the school between 7 AM-5 PM, August 30-September 6.
