They came in all shapes and sizes to assist flood victims of Hurricane Harvey on Sunday, Sept. 3 at Carroll Academy.
Volunteers from Aldine ISD, including hundreds of student-athletes, teamed up with Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and his teammates and Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner to hand out supplies to flood victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Watt’s home state of Wisconsin sent three 18-wheelers packed with hygiene products, diapers, pet supplies, cleaning materials and other items to provide assistance to members of the Aldine community whose homes were flooded or damaged as a result of the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey.
“The event at Carroll Academy was a big success,” said Aldine ISD Superintendent Dr. Wanda Bamberg, who was also present at the event. “It was an incredible amount of work and many people pitched in and worked from 7:30 a.m. until the late afternoon. I want to thank J.J. Watt, the Texans, Mayor Turner, State Representative Armando Walle and the many Aldine volunteers who supported this worthwhile event. I also want to thank Deputy Superintendent Dr. Archie Blanson for organizing things and the Aldine Police Department and our Child Nutrition Services for their support as well.”
Aldine ISD student-athletes assisted volunteers in unloading supplies, and volunteers worked inside Carroll’s cafeteria organizing them for distribution.
Assisting Watt in handing out supplies were teammates Christian Covington, Alfred Blue, Shane Lechler and Derek Newton.
