Harker Preschool students and their parents went all out to assist San Jose residents who were affected by the recent flooding. Preschool families donated about 80 bags and boxes of clothing, household goods, toys and canned food, as well as a television and $100 in gift cards. It took a village just to transport all the items!
The preschool’s effort was in conjunction with San Jose Councilman Raul Peralez’s office and Selma Olinder Elementary School, which partially flooded. Some parents contacted the school directly to donate larger items, said Jessica Macias, extended care coordinator at the preschool, who organized the effort at Harker.
