The Westlake Family would like to reach out to do what we can to help support our fellow Texans affected by Hurricane Harvey. Below is a list of campus organizations and how to help them support the victims of the floods.
Hyline has started a donation page:
Are collecting clothing to be donated.
Westlake Theatre is working through Texas Thespians to "adopt a school" in need.
Will begin receiving donations Monday, September 5, to "fill the trailer". A trailer will be on the Westlake campus Tuesday, September 6, All provisions collected will be delivered to people currently being stationed in the convention center. Items being collected are: new undergarments, new socks, toiletries, blankets, pillows, black trash bags, baby formula, baby diapers, and baby bottles.
Mrs. Mellenbruch's classes are raising money for animals impacted by the hurricane through Austin Pets Alive.
Westlake Choir is working with Sarah Hampson,a former student of Ms. Goodner's, and YES Prep.
YES Prep is a non-profit, open-enrollment college preparatory charter school in Houston, Texas. There are 17 title-one campuses around the Houston area that serve primarily low-income students in underserved communities. YES Prep believes that ALL children deserve access to a high quality education regardless of their zip code. Our student body serves approximately 12,000 6th-12th graders on their journey to and through college. This Amazon Wishlist was created to support our families that were most impacted by Hurricane Harvey and the flooding that destroyed many of their homes throughout the city.
Westlake Cheer is working directly with Katy High school to support their students and community in need.
The Westlake High School Swim and Dive Team is very dedicated to helping our community and with the destruction and disaster of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey. Shelters are now asking for tote bags, grocery bags and backpacks so people have something to carry other donations in. Other supplies such as hygiene products, and blankets are also in high demand. We will be receiving donations in the bins that can be found in room 340 starting on Monday September 4th. The drive will run until Friday September 22nd and all donations will be given to the shelters in highest need.
- Tote Bags
- Reusable Grocery Bags
- Care Packages
Here is the link to Mayor Adler's information on how to create a care pack for donation (http://www.mayoradler.com). We also want to promote written letters of encouragement to families that have been displaced by Harvey. Due to the extent of the destruction that is still ongoing, many of the people we know and love have been affected by this devastation.
