Dozens of children in Fort Bend ISD schools will receive new bicycles and scooters thanks to the generous efforts of the Kempner High School football team.
Kempner’s football players and coaches conducted a two-week donation drive this month to benefit children of FBISD families who have been identified by District social workers as needing holiday assistance. Thanks to the support of Kempner students and staff, the team collected enough funds to purchase 12 bicycles, 15 scooters and several bicycle helmets.
“Our bicycle donation drive is our way of giving back to the community that supports us,” said Darrin Andrus, Kempner’s Head Football Coach and Athletic Coordinator.
The team also holds an annual food drive to benefit area food pantries.
