CCISD Student Councils Join Together for Louisiana Floods Donation Drive

It's now been just 2 weeks since the devastating Louisiana floods, with hurricane Hermine being the latest focus, many have forgotten Louisiana residents still are left with no place to call home. But CCISD high schools have not.

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - It's now been just 2 weeks since the devastating Louisiana floods, with hurricane Hermine being the latest focus, many have forgotten Louisiana residents still are left with no place to call home. But CCISD high schools have not. 
 
"We've been prepping for this for about a week," said Sabrina Sanchez-Velilla, a King High School student council student. 
 
The student council at Veterans Memorial High teamed up with other student councils to hold a donation drive Saturday, anything from clothes to food to supplies going straight to the East Baton Rouge Parish School District.
 
"In our student council we kind of like to look at current events and then take part in them," said Zoya Surani, a member of the Veterans Memorial student council. 
 
The students say they chose that school district because 15,000 families in it have been affected...the floods destroying over 40,000 Louisiana homes all together. 
 
"It helps us not only appreciate what we have and all the resources that we have but also understand there are people that are less fortunate than we are," said Surani. 
 
Dozens of students coming by to drop off donations, a reminder that a small act of local kindness can have a much bigger nationwide impact.
