Our main program started in Texas and our home office is in Houston. We lived through Hurricane Harvey – so we know first hand what teachers need after a tragic storm like Florence. They need essentials to make sure their classrooms can be as normal as possible for students so adversely affected by the storm.
Donors Choose has a site set up ready to help those teachers affected by Hurricane Florence. If you hear about people who want to help North Carolina teachers, it is a great place to steer them.
From the Donors Choose Website –
DonorsChoose.org has created a recovery fund to help teachers at impacted schools create projects for the disaster recovery materials they need in the coming weeks. Every dollar donated at DonorsChoose.org/Hurricane-Florence will be used to fund a classroom project in a school affected by Florence.
