Humble ISD, Humble Middle School
Humble Middle School students spent part of their October Break giving back to help others. Thirty-five seventh and eighth-grade girls volleyball players volunteered at Kids’ Meals to prepare over 1,600 meals for preschool-aged children in need. Kids’ Meals delivers an average of approximately 3,100 meals per day throughout greater Houston.
“It’s important that children learn to give back and develop a spirit of giving,” said Torchawa Alexander, the coach at Humble Middle School who spearheaded the school’s effort to help Kids’ Meals. In addition to meals, the students also decorated and donated approximately 1,250 paper lunch bags to the program.
“Students really enjoyed decorating the bags and wanted to help as much as they could,” Alexander said.
“The students had such a positive experience that they want to help again during the February break,” Torchawa said.
