While everyone says we need to do more to help our environment and our communities, some students actually put those ideas into action.
Hussain Mohammed, a Texas A&M student and CFACT Driessen Fellow, recently helped lead a tree planting and clean up of a community near the Alabama-Coushatta Native American reservation of Texas.
The event was also a cooperative effort of Turning Point USA students and the YAF club on campus.
“This was a great opportunity to help the community,” said Hussain. “We planted about 50 Abiu fruit trees and 100 Alma or Indian Gooseberry trees. We did this so the community could maintain their self-sufficiency, since many of their crops were destroyed in recent tornadoes.”
Located in eastern Texas, the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe has the oldest reservation in the State located on approximately 10,200 acres. According to the tribe website: “There are more than 1,200 members, about half of whom live on the reservation.”
Look for more great efforts from the growing network of students at Texas A&m soon!
