Dear LA Unified Family,
Thank you for the many efforts taking place throughout our District to support our brothers and sisters in the Houston area. In the aftermath of such devastation, they continue to need our support.
As you continue to collect items at your school site, please note that the following requests are being made from the Houston Independent School District:
· New/gently used clothes, grades TK-12

The District has secured locations for donation centers. The donation centers will be open from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., starting on Wednesday, September 6th. All items brought to an LA Unified donation center should be the above listed items and will be sent to Houston ISD, at no cost to your school site. We are requesting that schools deliver their donated items to a nearby location center no later than Tuesday, September 12, 2017. If you have large amounts and need assistance with drop off, contact your local district and arrangements will be made. Please see attached list of identified location centers.
If you have additional questions, please contact your local district. Thank you for your continued commitment to rebuilding the lives of impacted families.
