A student in Elmhurst struggling to make it to school is about to have a much easier time thanks to the kindness of strangers.

Last month, a 14-year-old student at Newtown High School told her guidance counselor and her teacher that she wasn't coming to class because she didn't have enough to wear.

The student, who lives in a homeless shelter, said her clothing was stolen out of an unlocked car.

So her guidance counselor and teacher turned to social media, using the neighborhood Facebook pages in Central Queens and Bellmore, Long Island to enlist the help of the community. 

Over the past few days, they've received hundreds of responses from good Samaritans asking for a way to donate.  

"It's renewed, I think, a faith in humanity that I may not have had as much before. I needed that reminder that people are good and pure," said Newtown High School Guidance Counselor Jennifer Schneider.

"It's just so amazing to see all different people from all different walks of life coming together to support these students," said Newtown High School teacher Lisa Jimenez. 

They are still taking donations so they can help other needy kids in the school.
