Eagles Helping Houston

The Eagles Helping Houston relief effort will begin Wednesday, August 30 and go through next Wednesday, September 6. Students, faculty, staff, parents, and families are encouraged to participate in the relief effort. Please see the below list for the items we are collecting. Students may bring donations to any classroom, to the Upper School or Middle School offices, or to the Welcome Center. Each afternoon Vestry members and Student Government members will collect items from the rooms and offices and take them to a designated location for sorting and packaging. We will then load the donations on a truck to be transported to Houston, where the Episcopal Diocese and/or Episcopal schools will aid in the distribution.
