Donation

Oak Forest Elementary students received a donation of books from Elyse Kunzler, a senior from Richfield, Utah. Elyse shared that as a child she suffered from anxiety. She stated that books always brought her comfort, and she wanted other students to find that same comfort. When she read about what the students in Vidor were going through she knew she needed to help. With the help of her family, Elyse went to work collecting books for the students. She and her family flew from Utah to bring the books to the students of Oak Forest Elementary School.
