Bay Montessori's Houston Relief Donation Drive
Attention Bay Community!
We are organizing a donation drive to help children and families affected by Hurricane Harvey in Houston. Ms. Veronique, our teacher in the green door, will be driving down to Houston in a few weeks. She has graciously volunteered to bring any supplies or necessities we collect. We will be setting up a box in the office. The last day we will accept donations is Thursday, September 28th.
Please consider involving your child in putting together items for donation. One option is for children to make a child care kit for a child their age, while an adult models making an adult care kit. We have been told that care kits and backpacks will be needed for at least the next three months.
Thank you for your support in the Houston relief effort!
