Linden PBA Local No. 42 donated $100 toward Linden Public Schools’ wristband project to help a Texas high school destroyed by Hurricane Harvey.
Officers visited Linden High School on Monday to deliver the check to the Peer Pals class, which is spearheading the district-wide effort.
“I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the PBA,” said LHS Principal Yelena Horre. “The students and faculty of LHS are truly humbled by the unprecedented support received by the Linden community and our local PBA.
“It has been heartwarming to see so many people reach out to be part of this student movement, and to show students how far their voices can be heard.”
All donations will go toward helping Kingwood High School in Humble, Texas, which was flooded by Harvey’s deluge. Linden is pooling its money with its partner high school in Allen, Texas, to help Humble. Linden and Allen have had an ongoing relationship since Allen reached out in a spirit of sympathy and unity shortly after 9/11.
