In October, St. Andrew's Middle School volunteers helped re-settle three families from Eritrea, Afghanistan, The Democratic Republic of the Congo, and another pair of men from Afghanistan, which made the wonderful people at Refugee Services of Texas (RST) and the resettled families so incredibly happy.
The St. Andrew's volunteers consisted of two groups from Middle School teacher Annie Sykes’ Community Studies class and several other helpers, including faculty who donated all the items we needed to outfit the apartments. When I told the RST volunteer coordinator that we had gotten items donated for all four groups, she was incredulous. "Your teachers donated EVERYTHING?" I smiled and said, "Of course! We are primed to be servants too!"
