Rockwall-Heath HS Student Council Leads Students, Staff and the Community in a Hurricane Harvey Fundraiser.
For the past 3 weeks, the Rockwall-Heath HS Student Council, led by Advisor Kaci Spampinato and President Brooke Graves, went into action to help those affected by Harvey.
As a school and community, they were able to collect the following items:

250 cases of water
100+ packages of diapers & wipes
Several cases of baby formula
500+ trash bags
School supplies
Cleaning supplies
Wheelchair
Their first batch was distributed to first responders in the Beaumont area, delivered by Brady Z. Hill who owns State Farm Insurance in Rockwall.
The second batch, delivered by former RHHS teacher, Savannah Hill, Ben McMillain of Hazel & Olive Boutique and his friend Mike Perry, went to schools in Beaumont and Orange. Diapers, wipes and formula went to the CPS Rainbow Room for foster children.
Stuco also teamed up with RHHS football to sell a limited-edition Heath football shirt. All profits will be given to a Houston high school student council to help with the schools needs.
Special thanks to the following organizations:
Spanish National Honor Society for donating $500 work of items
FCCLA, PALS & Student Leadership students for bringing in numerous items
The students and staff at Rockwall Heath for donating
