Coahoma schools raise funds for Hurricane Harvey relief

 Though Coahoma is almost 500 miles northwest of La Porte, students and staff bridged the gap between the two communities by extending a helping hand after hearing about how the storm devastated the Houston area.

The Coahoma Elementary School Student Council initiated a coin drive and Hat Day fundraiser in which students and staff paid $1 to wear hats during school. As of Sept. 18, the district had raised over $2,200 to help with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in La Porte.
