On August 25th, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas. 51 inches of rain have fallen. 21 people have died. An estimated 8,500 people have been rescued. 30,000-40,000 people will need to stay in shelters. 215,000 students are out of school. In October of 2015, South Carolina experienced damaging floods. SC was where Texas is now: damaged and lost. Together we are Strong. We want to help them as they helped us. We are launching a district-wide initiative to support families in Houston.
