National groups can donate supplies to HISD students and families

Many HISD families have been devastated by the catastrophic flooding in the Houston area caused by Hurricane Harvey, and HISD welcomes assistance from national groups or corporations that would like to help our students recover and prepare for the coming school year.

The district is accepting donations of new and unused clothing, shoes, underwear, socks, uniforms and school supplies, as well as canned food and water.

Donations can be shipped to:

HISD Harvey Donations
Delmar Fieldhouse
2020 Mangum Road
Houston, TX 77092

“HISD is grateful to those who have reached out to us from beyond Houston asking how to help,” said HISD Superintendent Richard Carranza. “We have had school communities as far away as New York and Missouri ask what they can do. Well, this is what we need: food, clothing, and school supplies to make sure that when our students are finally back in the classroom, they are ready to learn. Thank you all for your support of our HISD students and families.”

The HISD Foundation is also accepting donations to help families recover, and 100% of funds raised will go directly to helping HISD students and families. Click here to make a donation, and please specify “Harvey” as the purpose of your donation.

      HISD’s Facilities team is assessing schools, and we will hopefully have a full picture very soon.

    I’m looking to get a list together of donations people can make to help the affected students, teachers, and their families. Especially supplies they will need to start school that they’ve lost. I’m from Baton Rouge Louisiana and all my friends and family want to donate items!
