Katy ISD Education Foundation Harvey Relief FundraiserKaty ISD Education Foundation Harvey Relief Fundraiser2017-09-11T16:21:15Z<div class="ExternalClass1DBAE78160D84B2E93AD562C9579C31F"><p style="text-align:center;">​<img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/Ed_Found_Harvey_Cover_Photo.png" alt="Ed_Found_Harvey_Cover_Photo.png" style="margin:5px;width:603px;height:226px;vertical-align:middle;" />​<br><em style="font-family:calibri, sans-serif;font-size:12pt;"><br>​Fundraiser for Katy ISD Families and Staff impacted by Hurricane Harvey</em><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><em></em></p><p>In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, 15,007 students and 2,600 employees of Katy ISD are recovering from direct impact of the storm. Despite the destruction, the Katy community has proven to be "Katy Strong" in providing support to those in need.  In keeping with that theme, the Katy ISD Education Foundation is launching an initiative that will provide support for Katy ISD families and staff adversely impacted by flooding in their homes as a result of Hurricane Harvey. The Foundation will collect donations from the community, while Katy ISD campuses will identify students and staff in need of support. This initiative was set in motion by the Foundation Board of Directors in response to numerous requests from our community.<br></p><p>"The Katy ISD Education Foundation has an unprecedented opportunity to bolster our community during this devastating time," says Tara Wilson, Katy ISD Education Foundation Board President.  "With a tremendous amount of work ahead of us, this small but mighty initiative will provide the necessary support to Katy ISD staff and families that need to not only rebuild homes, but rebuild lives." Any donation amount is welcome and donors will receive a tax receipt when the gift is processed. </p><p>With sixteen campuses affected by floodwaters, including Creech Elementary re-locating students for the remainder of the year, Katy ISD faces a significant road to recovery. "While the district is in a strong position to support facility recovery, and will do so, we are grateful for our community's support for the thousands of Katy ISD staff members and their families whose lives have been profoundly impacted by Hurricane Harvey," says Dr. Lance Hindt, Katy ISD Superintendent. "We have already seen incredible acts of compassion all over Katy from hundreds of volunteers serving four thousand evacuees in three Katy ISD schools used as shelters to our staff working tirelessly to return facilities to working order."</p><p>The Education Foundation's mission is to provide extraordinary classroom experiences to students and teachers in our district. In this case, the extraordinary will, in fact, be the ordinary, everyday items that will return home-lives to normalcy.  To give, visit <a href="http://tinyurl.com/pledgecentskatyisdfamilies">http://tinyurl.com/pledgecentskatyisdfamilies</a></p></div>
