    When the need arises, students, faculty and staff at Lamar State College Port Arthur come together to help. LSCPA recently delivered school supplies to elementary school students who were affected by Tropical Storm Imelda in Chambers County.

    The school supply drive took place after Imelda flooded much of Chambers County, destroying homes and their contents. Many schools took damage, especially in Winnie, Fannett and Hamshire.

    Student representatives delivered those supplies recently as the residents just west of the college work to overcome this disaster.
