Making "Back to School" happen in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey!

One teacher at a time...
One family at a time...
We will make a difference...  one story at a time.

According to the governor of Texas, hurricane Harvey displaced over 5,000,000 people... more than hurricane's Katrina and Sandy combined.   One of the worst communities hit was Katy, Texas with a population of about 16,000 people.

Sheridan Elementary is a Title 1 school situated in the heart of this community, where 66% of their families are disadvantaged.  The school buildings survived, but their school is still not open, because their teachers, families and communities are devastated. Many have lost their homes, their cars and most of their belongings.  This is where WE will lend our HELPING hands... getting the teachers and students of Sheridan Elementary back to school.

The good news is that we are uniquely situated to make a BIG difference there in helping those teachers and kids get back to school! 

Kelsey (Richvalsky) DeMarce, one of our long time Dream of a Better World supporters is a teacher at that very school.  She is working with us to relay their needs and to ensure that all of our raised support goes to where it's needed most.

All of our Dream Team members have voted and agree, our first priority... let's help those teachers who have lost their homes, cars and everyday items to get back to doing what they do best!
