Proceeds from the cover go to Texas.
School City of Mishawaka will start collecting school supplies for children affected on Tuesday.
Second grade Hums Elementary teacher Clare Holliday helped come up with the idea.
“We were watching the footage and getting very emotional about everything we were seeing and wanted to find a way to help out that was different from what everybody would be doing right now,” Holliday said.

They can be dropped off at Hums, Emmons, Mishawaka High School La Salle or Beiger.
The Salvation Army is accepting monetary donations.
Donors can go in person to the Kroc Center.
They can also visit helpsalvationarmy.org or text “STORM” to 51555.
“When we send money it not only gives us money to help those that we’re serving but it also helps do a little something for the economy,” Major Monty Wandling at the Kroc Center said.
