AUSTIN (KXAN) — A group of Round Rock ISD students are embracing the giving spirit this holiday season, using their student-run nonprofit to benefit refugee and immigrant children resettling in Central Texas. Nikhil Parida, Emaan Chhatriwala, Anagha Deepak and Nitya Parida founded HEARD Foundation last August, a nonprofit that supports displaced refugee children as they integrate into their new communities. The organization collaborates with other area nonprofits to raise funds that support refugees' academic support, health services and any financial needs they might have.
