'Dear Texas, I hope you feel good when you read this'

3rd graders put on paper words of comfort to Harvey victims


STANSBURY PARK, UT (ABC4UTAH) -- When an elementary school teacher saw the devastation from Hurricane Harvey, she wanted to do something. She never imagined the response she'd get from her entire school.


The students in Amanda Griffin's 3rd grade class started writing letters and when others got wind of the act of kindness the entire school ended up getting involved.

Students at Bonneville Academy in Stansbury Park put down on paper, words of comfort.

Louis Schoenhals, 8-years-old, "I'm trying to help as much as I can. I'm donating 200 diapers and a sweatshirt."
 
Amanda, "it was a class project and went school wide."

Trevor Johnson, "I wrote to encourage the people in Texas to be strong until this passes over."

Amanda, "just to see what their little brains think. I showed them pictures for them and to be so moved and to put it into words is awesome."
  
The letters and donations are being driven down Friday night and handed over to an elementary school in Houston by a non-profit organization called Hurricane Helpers.
