HISD Offers Help for Harvey Survivors

HISD Offers Help for Harvey Survivors
Posted on 09/05/2017

HISD students and faculty have been very concerned with their fellow Texans and the toll that Hurricane Harvey has taken on so many lives.  For that reason, each campus has participated opportunities presented to them to reach out and help their fellow man.

One opportunity was presented by a local business, Pierce Sales.  Pierce has generously donated three of their own brand of coolers to be sent to the Wichita Falls Fire Department on their humanitarian trips to help local agencies from the area render help and support to the people directly affected by the storm.  Pierce allowed HISD students an opportunity to sign the coolers and write encouraging messages to offer our support as they face the challenges that each day brings to them.

Our campuses also participated with local necessities drives.   Two campuses partnered with the extension office in their efforts and one campus participated by a drive headed up by one of their students.  The student had a direct connection to someone that was taking supplies to those in need.

HES had an overwhelming show of support for the extension office necessities drive.  An HES parent, Sarah Johnson, has contacted the school to let them know that she will be heading to South Texas to assist in search and rescue for the coastal bend.  She is willing to take supplies down with her when she leaves.  She is accepting donations of bottled water, canned foods, pet foods, blankets, leashes, collars, crates, kennels, flea and tick medications and heartworm medication.  She will need the items by Wednesday afternoon for this round, however she will likely be back and forth over the next few weeks trying to help.  For more information, check out Apollo Training Co. on Facebook and Texoma’s Homepage.

HJH NJHS is sponsoring a coin drive this week.  The proceeds from the coin drive will be donated directly to Mrs. Gaskey’s son and daughter-in-law.  They have been displaced from the storm and their insurance will not cover losses due to flooding. 

HHS will also be sponsoring “Hugs from Henrietta” this week.  For the cost of a donation, students can have their picture made with the mascot, cheerleader or football player of their choice.  The times for the photo opportunity are: Wednesday, September 6th at Cats Ignite on the square, Friday, 9/9 at HES before school starts, after the HHS pep rally and before the game on Friday night (this will only offer cheerleaders and mascot photos).  The proceeds from this fundraiser will be donated to the Harvey Relief Fund.

We thank our community for their support in helping up help others.
