Hurricane Harvey Donations:

In light of the devastating flooding impacting the people of eastern Texas we'll be collecting gift cards to help in the recovery effort. We would like to collect small denomination cards so we can help as many people as possible. Gift cards for national chains such as Target, Walmart, Costco, Sam's Club, BJs, Lowes and Home depot would be the best options. All gift cards will be collected in the main office throughout the month of September. Our students will be making "cards of hope" to send along with all of the gift cards. Thank you in advance for your support!

Hurricane Irma Dontations:

Hurricane Irma has displaced many families to temporary housing.  Those with food allergies are having an even harder time.  Please consider donating allergy friendly food for those in Florida who have food allergies.   We will have a box in the lobby collecting supplies and we will send off shipments as we get them.  
For more information of what to buy, see below or contact Kelli Dougherty at kellirich@comcast.net

Special E-News: Dine & Donate to help Houston

 
 

DINE AND DONATE TO HELP HOUSTON

 

The Funky Waffle is headed to Houston! UCFSD family, the Cawleys, have donated their RV, affectionately called The Funky Waffle, to a Houston family to live in while they rebuild their lives after Hurricane Harvey. Local neighbors and community business owners have donated their time and services to get the RV ready for its journey – now it’s your turn to help.

Help raise money to send the RV to Houston and to support the families in need. Sovana Bistro is hosting a “Dine and Donate” fundraiser this Sunday, September 10, from 4:30 – 9:00 PM to support the cause. Dine in, take out, even have a drink (or a few!) at the bar. Just be sure to mention that you’re dining for The Funky Waffle RVand twenty percent (20%) of your bill will be donated to The Funky Waffle ‘Houston or Bust’ campaign. To make this  fundraiser even tastier, Sovana Bistro will make a matching contribution.
