ROMEOVILLE – The students in the R.C. Hill Elementary School second grade class of Kelly Olen are very practical thinkers.
Obviously, there is a huge need in Texas for supplies such as food, water, clothing, etc. to provide relief in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. However, can you imagine being a kid living in a shelter while displaced from your home with nothing to do while the grown-ups work on solving the most pressing issues?
To provide some help, Olen’s students collected kid-friendly items like games, puzzles, and art supplies and put them into colorful “Shelter Bags” to share with kids in Texas shelters.
