Herod Community Flood Relief

As you are aware, many people in our community were severely affected by the recent storms and flooding. We have heard from families that have been displaced due to the water damage who will be facing months of rebuilding and repairs. In a few cases, families’ entire homes will be needed to be torn down and rebuilt. Knowing this, several people in the Herod community have reached out and asked how they can help. If you are interested, we are currently taking donations at Herod for the following items of need: boxes and plastic storage totes, gift cards to local restaurants, books and stuffed animals, and certificates toward mini-storage units or trailers.

If you are willing to help or are in need of a donation, please contact us at 713-778-3315, email Mr. Castle at bcastle@houstonisd.org, or sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0549ada92ba0f85-lend
