Gateway students raise funds for amputees in developing countries

Last year, the Brenham ISD Gateway Program participated in a service project to provide prosthetic legs to amputees in developing countries. We Help Two comes alongside organizations to help them reach their fundraising goals and enables them to help the most overlooked population in their communities at the same time. Choosing to run a ‘funky sock campaign’ Gateway students and those who purchased these funky socks provided amputees around the world a second chance at life by providing high-quality leg systems that cost less than a cell phone. Students in the Brenham ISD Gateway Program sold enough socks during the effort to help two amputees, Tika in Nepal and Gideon in Ghana. They also received 161 pairs of socks that will be donated to the Rainbow Room, an emergency resource center available to CPS caseworkers to help meet the critical needs of abused and neglected children. 

The Gateway students would like to express their sincere thanks to everyone in our community who supported this fundraiser!
