District 205 Sponsors Hurricane Harvey Fundraiser

District 205’s three middle school student councils are fundraising to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Nearly 50 Houston Independent School District (HISD) schools have been flooded to some degree, other schools are being used as shelters, and a growing number of students and families have left their homes behind.


There are three ways you can help students in Houston:

1. HISD has an immediate need for children’s clothes of all sizes (clean and in reasonably good repair) and school supplies. Please bring donations to Bryan, Churchville or Sandburg and we will send them to Houston for you. If you prefer to send items directly, they can be forwarded to: HISD Harvey Recovery, ℅ Delman Stadium, 2020 Mangum, Houston, TX 77092


2. Drop off a monetary donation of any amount and we will forward funds to the Houston Independent School District Foundation.


3. The HISD Foundation has set up a special to provide assistance to their students and families. To read more about their effort and/or make an online donation, please visit


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lisa Kerins or Eric Gorton at Sandburg Middle School.
