Beta Club Supplies Hurricane Relief for Puerto Rico

10/06/2017

The Runnels Senior Beta Club has raised $385.00 for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico through its recent Undies for Everyone campaign. The fundraiser was conducted at Runnels School in September.  
     
Undies for Everyone is a non-profit organization founded for the purpose of collecting and distributing new underwear to underprivileged students in the Houston area. Following the recent hurricanes, the charity expanded its efforts to include hurricane victims in Texas and Puerto Rico. To date, the organization has distributed more than 1,000,000 pair of new and packaged underwear. 
     
Spearheading the collection at Runnels were Senior Beta officers Kalyee Freiberger, Anna Kadi, Anna Claire Pousson, Ashley Stansbury and Austin Stansbury and club sponsor Michele Stanfield. 
     
In October, the club is scheduled to volunteer at the Rural Life Museum’s Harvest Days and the Louisiana Book Festival.
