The event is taking place on October 27 and will include students from Amarillo ISD Bushland, Canyon, River Road, Highland Park, as well as Ascension Academy

Students will be able to participate in hands-on activities for community concerns like putting together care kits for families fighting homelessness, listening to community leaders, and have a chance to interact and volunteer with local community programs.
