Staff members and Teachers at Medrano Junior High in Dallas ISD came forward to feed students and their families after the winter storm.

They extend their help and raised thousands of dollars to buy food and supplies for their families.

Teachers and staff raised roughly $10,000 in two days to feed students and their families.

The families at Medrano Junior High have been trying to come up with the challenges faces by them due to tornadoes in October 2019, the ongoing pandemic and now a winter storm disturbed classes for more than a week.

Teacher Marisa Swanson said, "It’s heartbreaking. It’s very frustrating because at Medrano."

"Our kids are fantastic. They’ve been through so much, and it feels like every year we just kind of keep getting hit."

Though the school building wasn’t much affected by the storm, their families were clobbered over the past week.

Swanson said, "Each day, over half of our families didn’t have power up until Friday."

"Many of them still don’t have water. Several of them, their rooms or apartments or houses flooded. A lot of them moved into hotels which also lost power."

Toward the end of the week, families had run out of food and started asking for help.
