    Thanks for putting this information up. I donated what I could for now for both people and animals and I feel better than I did this morning. I still have a bag of clothes I can’t wear and want to give to the victims of the hurricane and not end up on a thrift store shelf somewhere.

    I saw two young ladies on the news saying they are collecting new back packs for the hurricane children that are now in Texas.
    Do you know where we are to send them to?

    Anne – I did a quick search online and found this HISD information (,2…94_126391250,00.html).

    You can contact Anne Silver at the HISD warehouse to discuss drop-off times: 713-676-9293

    They will be closed on Monday. Thanks for the heads up!

    We are an elementary school in NYC and would like to ADOPT A SCHOOL to help the students affected by Hurricane Katrina. We would like to send them backpacks filled with what they need as well as forge a relationship with each student, like a pen-pal, that would be year long at least. We would like a public school elementary principal to email us to create this relationship with the school. Please email me at

    We are an elementary school in the High Desert about 100 miles northeast of LA in the town of Helendale, California and would like to ADOPT A SCHOOL to help students affected by Hurricane Katrina. What started as a penny drive by 20 first graders has now spread across the grade levels, school-wide. We would like to be able to develop a relationship with the school and its students, pen-pals, etc. We would like and elementary school principal to email us to create this relationship with the school. Please email me at Thanks!
