Donations for Texans

Hello Parents/Caregivers,

As an extension of what the Heartland Community is doing to reach out to Texans in need, our school would like to ask you to participate in a collection of school supplies for victims of Hurricane Harvey. As many of you know, the storm caused severe damage to many homes, churches, nursing homes, and other facilities. Elementary schools took a hard hit as well and it will take time to successfully recover from the flooding.

As Texans rebuild, restore, and repair their schools, we can certainly  help by making donations. Throughout the week, please, feel free to drop off school supplies at the school under the mural in the foyer (see list at end of this email); you can also bring supplies to church on Wednesday evening (9/13/2017) or on Friday/Saturday. These supplies will be packaged and sent on a trailer with other non-perishable food items, cleaning supplies, and other resources being donated by the community and collected through the church.

If you have any questions or concerns about donations for schools, please, contact the HCA Front Office (660.284.6300 or x4100).

Thank you,
Shabaka Williams
