Individuals and local organizations have an opportunity to help HISD students and families impacted by Hurricane Harvey by volunteering at the district’s designated donation site.
Delmar Fieldhouse (2020 Mangum Road, Houston, TX 77092) will be receiving donations the week of Sept. 11 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Anyone interested in volunteering will need to sign-up by clicking here, and select the day and time they can volunteer.
Morning volunteer shifts run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., and an afternoon shift is available from 1 to 6 p.m. Tasks vary depending on the number of donations being received, but can involve loading, unloading, sorting, and packaging.
“As most of our students prepare to start classes on Monday, Sept. 11, we want to continue our efforts of collecting clothing, hygiene items, and supplies to help our kids and their families” said Dr. Michelle Burke, Director of Family And Community Empowerment (FACE). “We need the help and commitment of our volunteers to offer that added support to our HISD community,” she added.
In addition to volunteering, donations can be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. The district is accepting donations of new or unused items such as:
- Hand sanitizer
- Toothbrushes, toothpaste
- Other hygiene items
- Professional dress for impacted staff
