Teaching What the Storm Brought

What the Storm Brought

Paco and his friends get together to discuss a terrible storm that has a devastating effect on a nearby town. They decide that they want to do something to help the people of the town, many of whom have lost houses and other valuable things. After careful brainstorming, the group of friends decides to hold a garage sale, with the proceeds benefitting the townspeople.
