Glenwood and Center collection of new backpacks and school supplies

The  students of Glenwood Junior High and Center Intermediate schools  were excited to do whatever they could to collect new school supplies for students in the small port town of Port Aransas, Texas.   Port Aransas is  located on a barrier island near Corpus Christi.   Town leaders reached out to Mahoning Valley humanitarian Kathy Price and the Mission of Love for aid following Hurricane Harvey in September.  Kathy Price then reached out to the students in Boardman for help.


More than 100 new backpacks, boxes full of notebooks, colored pencils, binders and other various school supplies were collected.  These items will help kids who lost so much in the catastrophic flooding of Harvey. “The hurricane relief school supplies are on their way to the Mission of Love warehouse where they will be prepared to be shipped to students in need. Thanks to all students and staff from Glenwood Jr. High  and Center Intermediate School who contributed,” said Glenwood teacher Eric Diefenderfer.  Special thanks to Jennifer Dravecky and the social studies teachers at Center for collecting, packing and storing all the items.  


Mission of Love is based in Austintown, and is a humanitarian relief organization dedicated to helping third world countries and victims of natural disasters through airlifts and truck transports of medical supplies, clothes, school supplies, and building materials.
