'Undies RoundUP' campaign benefits Klein ISD students

Lone Star College-University Park President Shah Ardalan and Klein ISD Superintendent James W. Cain met May 2 as LSC-University Park staffers delivered more than 1,300 pairs of new underwear for needy students.

LSC-University Park launched its first "Undies RoundUP" in March during the Houston Rodeo & Livestock Fair after learning that undies were an unmet need for needy Klein ISD students of all ages.

Students, faculty, staff and community members responded immediately, bringing and mailing packages of new underwear to the college.

"We asked what was needed, and decided we could help," Ardalan said. "We are this community's college, and this was a need in our community."

Cain said Klein ISD appreciates the effort that will touch many families, including those affected by recent flooding. "We appreciate your kindness and we thank you for your generosity," he said. "Our students who are in need will benefit."
