Lakers Aiding Texas Town

LaGrange, IN

(LAGRANGE) – It was made famous in the lyrics of a ZZ Top song, but now LaGrange, Texas is dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

The town of fewer than 5,000 residents sits along the Colorado River which rose 50 feet thanks to the storm, flooding more than 340 homes.

The Lakeland School Corporation in LaGrange County, is taking action to help the residents there affected by flooding.

All schools in the district will participate in a program bringing awareness of the needs of those Texas residents and make a financial donation to the Harvey Relief Fund there.

The Lakeland-Garrett football game on September 8 will have a moment of silence to remember those affected, and buckets will be passed throughout the stands to take contributions to the effort.

The local committee is accepting donations of items for door prizes for those participating that night along with monetary donations for the Harvey Relief Fund in LaGrange, Texas.

Contact the school at 499-2485 if you would like to help.
