Sep. 7, 2017/Social Halo Media/–Hurricane Harvey has taken plenty from its victims, homes, cars, personal items and more. There are immediate needs such as food, water, and shelter but more needs will come soon. Sydney Paige has partnered with Roonga to prepare donations for the future needs of Harvey victims.
There are immediate needs of Hurricane Harvey victims that need addressing but there will be more, later and Sydney Paige is aiming to help.
When life begins to get back to normal, schools will reopen for students. Many children who attend those schools will be without pencils, paper, backpacks, and other school supplies. The partnership between Sydney Paige and Roonga has one goal, to make sure students have what they need when they return to school by hosting a school supply and backpack drive.
Sydney Paige hopes that the drive will provide 3,000 packs to Hurricane Harvey’s school-age victims and their teachers.
Low-income students make up more than 75% of the Houston Independent Public School District, other districts have similar economic conditions. This statistic just cements that replacing lost school supplies will be very difficult. In some cases, school supplies will be last on the list of things to get after returning to normal life. While the school supplies won’t meet all of the needs of the victims, they will be a step in the right direction.
Not only can donating to children victims of Hurricane Harvey show them that the world cares about them. In fact, these donations could help shape how they see the world during natural disasters.
