As many Puerto Ricans still lacked water and electricity after Hurricane Maria’s devastation, San Marcos students with special needs recently participated in a service project to help. The students from the Mission Hills High School Bridge and Excel Program, led by teachers Mr. Flack, Mr. Hughes, Mrs. Condelles, and Mrs. Borrelli, decorated bags and filled them with hygiene products. The kits are individualized for men, women, and children.

Afterwards, they sent the bags to Michelle Borrelli’s friend who teaches in Puerto Rico, who then handed them out to families still living without running water and electricity. The bags were donated by Michelle’s mother.
