Locals lend a hand in Port A

Excited kindergarteners got to pick their favorite stuffed animals when they arrived for classes Oct. 16.

Local residents Amy Younts, Cyndy Slovak-Barton and Arlene Monroe (right) deliver stuffed animals to PAISD counselor Pam Cartwright for distribution to children in the school.

While Port A is slowly recovering, local residents and businesses work day by day to clean up the mess. The local newspaper, the Port Aransas South Jetty, lists business openings each week, printing when local businesses believe they will be open for business. The schools were so damaged that the children could not come to school until this week, after portable buildings were brought to the island.  More than 225 animals, with more than 30 being crocheted by the prisoners at the Kyle Correctional Facility, were gathered in Buda and Kyle and brought to the Port A schools.
