      These last few months have certainly provided plenty of
      opportunity to take those measurements. The school year started out with
      the YCT actively involved in helping others as Hurricane Harvey dealt a
      blow to the Houston area. Senator Terrence Murphy worked with
      NYSUT to send trucks of food and supplies to Houston residents and
      schools. The YCT collected over 500 pounds of food and school supplies
      and served as a loading location for the trucks
