Franklin Regional begins 'Texas Strong' t-shirt sales to benefit hurricane-hit schools
Franklin Regional officials have begun sales of “Texas Strong” t-shirts to raise money for three south Texas schools hit hard by Hurricane Harvey.
Students and staff will sell t-shirts both through the district and at the next two upcoming events, according to high school teacher Becky Magness.
The shirts proclaim that the “Franklin Regional Community is Texas Strong,” featuring the state's “lone star” and its outline.
Money raised will go to the Austwell-Tivoli, Refugio and Woodsboro independent school districts.
Shirts will be sold at both the Oct. 6 game against Penn-Trafford, and the Oct. 12 bonfire the night before the homecoming football game against Latrobe. Those who purchase shirts are asked to wear them to the homecoming game.
Both games start at 7 p.m. at Panther Stadium, off of School Road in Murrysville.
