Dickinson High School students are raising $10,000 for victims of Hurricane Harvey

News

Dickinson High School is raising money for the students at Dickinson High School in Texas, who are suffering from the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey.

When McKenna and her friends at DHS saw the unrelentless fury of the hurricane, they couldn’t believe what they saw.

”  . .  how high the water was on the highway . . .  I was shocked,” said McKennna.

To help their sister-school in Texas out, she and the students of the National Honor Society at Dickinson High School decided to raise money by selling T-Shirts.

” It’s Dickinson, Texas that we are specifically raising money for. We are raising money for the school there, and their NHS. Even though we’ve never met them we are still both Dickinson’s and it is really cool,” said Amy Wegner, Dickinson High School senior.

So far, the students have sold 50 T-Shirts at their school for $15 each, but Logo Magic, who is preparing the shirts, is helping the students reach a bigger market. 

” We decided to take it further and do an online store. Their is a link (school website) where they can order shirts. It takes us to anywhere in the country, and we ship from right here at Logo Magic,” said Lynn Andres, co-owner of Logo Magic.

 Raising money through T-Shirt sales is only part of what the students are doing. They are also raising money through donation jars at local businesses, and the students said the community has been charitable.

“Everyone was more than willing to take the jars. Some people we didn’t even have to give our entire little speech,” said Amy.

The student’s goal is  $10,000, and so far they have raised about $3,000, but in the end, the students are proud to be part of Dickinson.

“I like the support we have gotten from the community,” said  Alexus Meduna, Dickinson High School senior.

” We don’t know anyone down there ,but we are still willing to help them in their tragedy,” said Cora Knipp, Dickinson High School senior.

The students said  the have received $1,300 from individual student donations at school, and they hope to reach their goal and start sending out shirts by Sept. 21.
