Thanks to a few of our dedicated partners in education, students across the district will have the opportunity to receive new clothes.
Last year the Klein Collins High School Student Council raised money from selling t-shirts and donated $10,000 to help purchase clothing for Klein ISD students in need. Additionally, ICI Construction, Inc. donated $15,000 to continue helping those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Together, these funds purchased nearly 3,300 polo style shirts and khaki pants and shorts for our students.
“While it has been more than a year since Hurricane Harvey devastated our community, there are still families dealing with its aftermath,” said Klein ISD Director of Community Relations Cindy Doyle. “We are very fortunate to have partners like ICI Construction, Inc. that continue to support our students, as well as our own Klein Collins students who chose to make a difference for students across the district.”
Semi-annually the district surveys all of the Klein ISD campuses to determine their top two needs for students. Clothing is always in the majority after schools supplies. This year, with the extra donations from ICI Construction Inc. and the 2017 Klein Collins Student Council, the district was able to purchase new clothing for all K-12 students in need.
“ICI feels it is important to give back to the students who are in a financially challenging situation,” said ICI President, Bart Cobb. “We feel that they should have the same tools to succeed in getting a solid education as everyone else, whether that be school supplies or clothing” he added.
The Klein ISD warehouse spearheaded the sorting and delivery of clothing once it first received more than six pallets of clothing boxes. The team sorted the clothing by size and packaged the clothing with each Klein ISD campus receiving equal amounts of clothing which were then distributed on their normal warehouse delivery routes.
Thank you to all of these P2PInvestors who continue to focus on EVERY student and who are selflessly helping to build community by helping others.
