SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) — Ashten's Compassion held its first golf tournament on Saturday. It was an early morning for golfers at the Stone Creek Golf Club with an 8:30 tee time to help support the students of Howe Independent School District.

The organization understands the importance of taking care of kids in need.  Ashten Davis, the daughter of Jasen and Penny Davis, passed away on January 3. To celebrate her legacy, they established Ashten's Compassion, as she consistently prioritized the well-being of others.

The charity strives to improve the lives of kids in need, and seeks to impact the community through innovative methods.

Perfectly timed with the start of the school year, this tournament was focused on Howe students.

"We wanted to make sure the kids of Howe receive hygiene bags to be able to help them throughout the year," Jasen Davis said.

The goal is to ensure that all 1,300 Howe ISD students will receive a hygiene bag that includes soap, shampoo, and deodorant.

Howe director of curriculum and instruction Clarissia Doty said says it's a gift that will help students' self-confidence.

"Any time those hygiene bags can help a kid have a better self-concept of themselves, that's a win," she said.

Jasen Davis previously worked with Howe ISD and recognizes their dedication to helping students.

"Completely blown away with the support that we got," he said. "We appreciate the Howe district; some of the students came out on a Saturday, so they were able to give up a little bit of their time to be able to come out and help us."

The event 116 golfers tee'd off to help raise money.
