Donating to Hurricane Harvey Relief - Proud to Be a Texan

Even though I was born and raised in Louisiana, Texas is my home. Both of my girls were born here in Austin and most of my years of teaching were here in Texas. And, my husband's family lives in Houston and Beaumont. So, you can understand the personal impact this disaster has had on our family. As I look at ways people have been Donating to Hurricane Harvey Relief, it makes me so proud to be a Texan.


We all know how devastating and deadly Hurricane Harvey was in Texas in 2017, so now it's our chance to help our Texan friends! Find out how this one proud Texan teacher is watching her community support the relief efforts in multiple ways. You may find ideas you could do in your own classroom or community.
