HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEF UPDATE


Thank you for the outpouring of support we have received from Kiwanis clubs from all over. The TX-OK District of Kiwanis is pleased to report we have received hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of goods (i.e. shoes, school supplies, hygiene products, socks, food, tarps for torn apart roofs, bottled water, tools and more) as well monetary donations, most of which have been used to purchase additional relief supplies for those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. These items came from Kiwanians and Key Clubbers from all over the nation, including a $23,000+donation from the Cal-Nev-Ha District, $10,000 from the D.C. District and $20,000 (donation of cleaning supplies, water, food, tools) from Florida District, not to mention the thousands of dollars from clubs in TX-OK and throughout the nation. What an outpouring of love for our fellow man? THANK YOU to everyone on the ground, in the Houston area getting resources out to those communities in need. There is so much to do it can feel overwhelming, but WE ARE KIWANIANS. Together, we can help rebuild our homes, schools, and community centers.  THANK YOU to everyone who has made the relief effort possible. #KidsNeedKiwanis

KIWANIS CLUBS RESPOND TO HURRICANE HARVEY – HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Why donate to Kiwanis during this Disaster? Because long after everyone else goes home we are still working in those communities helping families. Why you say….because our Clubs are a vital part of those communities. Kiwanis Clubs in Conroe, Baytown, Pasadena, Houston and more will still be helping families this time next year. Kiwanis will still be helping schools and will still be doing all their other great programs.

Hurricane Harvey wreaks havoc on the Texas Coast

The Texas Oklahoma Kiwanis disaster relief team is now active in delivering supplies to shelters and school supplies to children in the affected areas. Heavy flooding in the greater Houston area has shut down schools for the next week. Along the coast, some schools cease to exist. While many people were able to leave ahead of the storm, shelters are reporting a shortage of personal items for people who may stay in the shelters for the next 2 weeks! Some people do not have a home to return to. We need your help! Kiwanis clubs in the Houston, Galveston, Port Aransas, Victoria, Baytown, Rockport, and Pasadena areas will be distributing boxes of personal items to people in need. If you would like to donate funds to this effort, please use the PayPal button on the lower right of this page. If your donation must be tax deductible, please send a check to the address below and mark the check as a donation to the disaster relief fund:
