Leeds Elementary School Hurricane Relief Donations





Leeds Elementary School students and staff invite you to reach out to the families and schools affected by the recent destructive hurricanes in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and surrounding areas. We are asking for your contributions to our Leeds’ School Hurricane Relief efforts during this urgent time as the disaster damaged dozens of classrooms while students and teachers like us prepared for the new school year. Right now, more hurricanes are hitting the affected areas once again, while relief efforts are in progress. Rebuilding will take a long time for these communities; so will our efforts. Our students want to lend them a hand. Please join Leeds’ students and staff in reaching our initial goal of $2,000 by November 1. Our fifth-graders launched the project on Wednesday, September 27 at the 9:30a.m. Community Meeting.

 

Families in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and many other affected areas are working to regain emotional and physical stability while schools are desperate to replace all they’ve lost: books, bookcases, technology, easels, literacy supplies and the like. Please help to support the first responders and provide medical supplies (Red Cross), to help teachers replace damaged classrooms (DonorsChoose.org), and to rebuild literacy-rich classrooms, places where our children’s words and stories matter (Literacy Lifeboats). 100% of the donations raised by the Leeds Elementary School community will go to these hurricane recovery projects which means that every penny of your tax deductible donation will help.

 

Thank you to our generous donors and corporate partners, including InCord Play and the Starfish Project, for supporting students, teachers, and families impacted by the recent hurricanes. This is a Leeds PTO-sponsored project, initiated by students and staff who care.
