On Sept. 3, members of the College of the Mainland employee group COMPeers delivered donated school supplies to La Marque Independent School District.

The supplies were collected by COM employees and students in COM Collegiate High School. All supplies will go directly to LMISD teachers to use in their classrooms.

“They were very surprised and grateful,” said Rosie Rojas, COMPeers secretary. “They are going to let teachers come and shop. Kids run out of school supplies and teachers have to make up the deficit. This way teachers won’t have to use their own funds for supplies.”
COMPeers, an employee organization dedicated to service to the campus and community, last year donated school supplies to Hitchcock ISD.
