Disaster Relief: Helping Kids Make A Difference

When natural disasters hit, it can be especially scary for kids. No doubt they’ve heard about Hurricane Harvey, and the coming Hurricane Irma. Engaging kids in helping other kids helps them feel powerful during times of uncertainty and their support is especially welcome.


Here’s a few ideas for helping kids make a difference:


Host a school supply drive for kids in affected schools in Houston & The Gulf Coast. Connect with Houston Food Bank and the Food Bank of Corpus Christi to learn what’s needed and where to ship items.


Raise money with a bakesale, Restaurant Fundraiser, or any other fundraising method and donate the funds to a children’s program in the recovery area. Suggested ____ or ___


If you’re close a to an evacuation center, have your class come together to make Welcome Kits for families – gather a warm blanket, toiletries, books and crafts, non-perishable snacks like granola bars and personal hygiene items.  Be sure to include a personal note from the kids.
