LUFKIN (KTRE) - The East Texas community came together to make Homecoming special for a few Lufkin High schoolers.
Lufkin High teacher Abby McCarty made a call to get donated mums and garters for students who couldn't get one.
McCarty said for many students this was their first Homecoming swag.
"So humbled by the community we live in!," wrote McCarty on Facebook. "THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to everyone who donated and/or assembled mums. You are such a blessing!"
She added that many of the students had the biggest smiles on their faces Friday morning.
