The Copperas Cove Five Hills royalty are making sure more than 2,000 pounds of clothes, shoes, backpacks, and other things that students left behind in lost and found this year go to a good cause. 

The group collected the lost and found items from all 11 Copperas Cove ISD campuses.

Wells Laundry allowed the Copperas Cove Five Hills royalty to wash and dry all 2,000 pounds of clothes for free. 

The group Communities in Schools then chose things less fortunate students could use next year. 

"There are a lot of kids in the community that are low income, that have low income families, or are homeless, and being able to give them the things that they need, their necessities for school, is just amazing," Emily Kimball, the Five Hills Ambassador, said. 

The remaining clothes Went to Optimist Thrift Store in Copperas Cove where Communities in Schools representatives have free access to throughout the school year.
