The Story

Moore Elementary is located in the Lakewood Forest subdivision near Cypress, Texas.  This neighborhood, as well as the school, experienced significant damage from the massive flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey.  The first day of school was supposed to be August 28th, and teachers had just finished setting up their classrooms right before the storm hit.  These teachers lost many of their personal belongings that they had purchased with their money from their own bank accounts.  School supplies, decorations, classroom libraries, and classroom manipulatives and materials were destroyed.  The money collected from this page will go DIRECTLY to these teachers to help replace what was lost.  These teachers are going to play a critical role in helping these children recover from the trauma they have recently experienced.  Let's put the teachers in the best position possible to help their community of children who have been affected by Harvey.  Thank you so much for your donation! (Please make sure you follow all instructions you receive via email after you make your donation to ensure that your transaction is completed.)

I cannot say thank you enough to everyone who has given so generously to these teachers.  I have been up at their new location the past few days, and they are just blown away by the support and generosity being offered. We are so close to reaching our final goal.   I will be keeping this page open until 11:59pm on Wednesday to get your final donations in, so if you or someone you know is considering donating, please let them know.  Thank you so, so much!

Wow! I am blown away by how much money this little fundraiser has raised in the first 24 hours!  The district has confirmed that Moore Elementary received the most damage in the entire district.  In fact, the school is going to have to undergo a massive renovation that will take at least 3-4 months to complete, and they are having house the school at a different building for at least the first semester.  In light of this new information, I have raised the initial goal.  Please remember that there are about 50 classroom teachers at Moore, and each of them lost hundreds to thousands of dollars of their own personal belongings.  I can assure you, that not a penny we raise will be wasted as these teachers will need a significant amount to basically start over.  

Let me also assure you that these teachers are so, so grateful for every dollar you give.  I have personally spoken to several of them, and they cannot wait to get back to work, and start making a difference in the lives of their students!  Many of them have been out in their school community the past few days, helping with the initial repair process to the damaged homes in the neighborhood surrounding the school.  They truly are amazing men and women, and they, along with the students they serve, desperately still need your support.  Thank you so much!
