Hurricane Harvey has been devastating and far-reaching in its impact on Texas residents. As we gear up to start a new academic year at Gaynor, we are thinking of students in Texas who have lost belongings, are unable to obtain access to supplies, and/or attend school, due to damage from flooding and high winds. After discussing how Gaynor and our community could help with hurricane relief, we have identified a partner school in the Houston Independent School District, Briarmeadow Charter School.
This two-pronged effort begins with a drive for school supplies starting on the first day of school, September 7, and continues through September 14, during which time designated boxes for drop-off will be placed in the lobbies of the North and South Buildings. On September 15, the Parents’ Association will host a bake sale which will raise additional proceeds to support Briarmeadow. The drive and bake sale are the first efforts of a year-long commitment by Gaynor for hurricane relief.
To review the full list of items being collected and to learn more about Briarmeadow Charter School, please see the graphic below.
We appreciate everyone’s support of these relief efforts, and we look forward to working together as a community to make a difference.
