Donate Today - Any amount helps children & families in need
Any amount you can contribute helps – the more we collect, the more we will be able to distribute. Designation by the IRS as a not-for-profit 501(C)(3) organization is pending, so your contribution will be fully tax deductible. No administrative fees or overhead costs are being charged, which means that 100% of funds will be used to support families and schools in Matagorda County.
connecting children & families with care
The Bay City, Palacios, Tidehaven, Van Vleck, and Matagorda Independent School Districts are participating in this campaign. Their teachers and counselors will be trained in recognizing children whose behaviors and mental health have been affected by the trauma of mandatory evacuation and disruption of their lives, and school counselors will be more intensively trained in delivering trauma-informed counseling and support. We also will conduct free family counseling programs for families seeking social/emotional support as they recover from the storm and its effects.
