On September 30th, 2017, Red Oaks students volunteered their Saturday afternoon to collect school supplies for Houston schools gravely affected by Hurricane Harvey. Thirteen Middle School students and one alumnus were posted outside the local Walmart where they distributed flyers asking customers to purchase and donate school supplies. Red Oaks teachers Noga Beer and Annemarie Feldman chaperoned the event along with parent Claire Elias.
By the end of the afternoon, our determined students collected THREE FULL shopping carts of supplies! The school supplies will be sent to the local Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) chapter in Houston, who will then disburse the items to deserving schools. The shipment will also be bundled with encouraging, handwritten letters from our Red Oaks students. Many thanks to all of those who have donated and thanks to the Feldman family who has graciously offered to facilitate the shipping arrangements!
