Several weeks after the tragedy of Hurricane Harvey, victims are still left with the heavy task to rebuild and rise from the chaos.

The devastation wreaked havoc from August 25-September 3, leaving billions of dollars in damages, affecting approximately 13 million people, and forcing a recovery that could take months, or even years.

Since the disaster struck, Desert Oasis have established a donation box purely for Hurricane Harvey victims, with donated items including notebooks, binders, and any other materials students could give.

There are many ways that you and your community can contribute on getting the citizens of Houston back on thier feet outside of school. The following ways to help include:

  • Donating blood
  • Donating clothes
  • Donating money
  • Donating toys and supplies
  • Temporary housing
  • Adopting animals affected
