BILOXI, Miss. (WHDH) — Students at a high school in Mississippi are bringing truckloads of donations to a school in Louisiana affected by heavy flooding.

The robotics team at St. Patrick’s High School is heading to a competition at a high school in Baton Rouge this weekend. The school itself was spared but 90 percent of the staff and studeny body lost everything in the massive flooding.

The robotics team started a “pillow project” to help out. Packed into individual pillowcases are school supplies, a first-aid kit and hygiene products, along with games, books and a bottle of water.

“We’re showing the kids that they have a lot of support,” said St. Patrick’s High School junior Anna Broadus.

The students are bringing truckloads of supplies and food donated their school and will deliver 50 backpacks filled with school supplies. They are also contacting other schools in Baton Rouge to distribute donations to them.
