In October, Humble High School challenged Kingwood Park High School to a friendly food drive competition. Both schools collected donations for two weeks leading up to their big varsity football game at Turner Stadium on November 4.


“HAAM is deserving of our donations because they help thousands of families in our community each year,” Humble High School junior Edward Reyes said.


Humble High School International Baccalaureate students took the lead on this initiative and designed fliers and promoted the project school-wide.


“I want to emphasize that this was not just a competition against Kingwood Park High School but it’s about supporting HAAM,” Humble High school junior Giovani Diaz said.


Kingwood Park High School Student Council took the lead on their campus to collect donations for the competition.


“HAAM serves many people in our area,” Kingwood Park High School senior Amelie Herbert said.  “This organization gives people the opportunity to eat and not worry about the hardships of feeding their families.”


Humble High School won the overall food drive and collected more food than Kingwood Park High School but the real winner is HAAM!


“My hope is that we are able to shine light on the need to partner with organizations like HAAM,” Diaz said. “There are people in our community that benefit from this organization and we are happy to help.”


All donations were delivered to Humble Area Assistance Ministries to support local families.
