On September 11, 2017, the Katy ISD Education Foundation launched an initiative to provide support for Katy ISD families and staff that were impacted by the flooding from Hurricane Harvey by collecting donations from the community.
The response was overwhelming. In just four days, the foundation had raised approximately 50 percent of their original goal. As of this morning, the total funds raised was $56,249. The new goal - $75,000 to be given directly back to men, women, and children right here in Katy ISD who lost homes, personal possessions, and who need it most.
Individual donations can be made in any amount, no matter how big or small, or the foundation provides options to donate up to $2500 at a time for those who are willing and able.
The fundraiser will close on Tuesday, October 10, 2017. Click here to contribute.
"While the district is in a strong position to support facility recovery, the real need we see lies with the families in our community," says Superintendent Lance Hindt.
