HOUSTON, Tx. - On the first day of their winter break, students enrolled in Willowridge High School’s AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program, gathered at the school for their 2nd annual “Adopt-A-Family” event.

Students reached out to sponsors, gathered funds, and organized the distribution of both food and toys to 16 underprivileged families in their community. The program grew from just one family last year, and hopes to grow to help even more in the future.
