ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Westover Comprehensive High School students in Albany are helping storm victims in Texas out in a big way.

The school raised roughly $2,300 for Hurricane Harvey relief. 

The fundraiser was all the students idea. 

About 35 students at the school make up a community service club called 'My Brothers Keepers.'

The students decided to ask students and staff to collect money during their first period classes. 

The school's principal decided to take it a step further and give a pizza party to the class that raised the most money. 

Tepedric Hill runs the service club at the school. 

"When you see them having that feeling of empathy, when they can put themselves in someone else's place, we know we are doing something right. So that was awesome for me," said Hill with a smile.               

A check will be sent to the American Red Cross in support of Hurricane Harvey victims.
