Katy ISD announced it is extending the deadline for its annual Food for Families campaign to Friday, Dec. 10.

Katy ISD’s Partners in Education works to spread holiday cheer with this annual fundraiser that provides support to Katy ISD families in need.  The goal this year is to raise $10,000 – enough to provide one meal to 200 families.

“We initially launched Food for Families as a means for Katy ISD administrators to offer tangible support for district students in need,” said Janet Theis, Katy ISD Partners in Education Specialist.  “Last year, we extended our outreach to Katy community members and businesses as this is a great way to directly impact the holidays of families right here in Katy ISD.”

The cost to feed one family has increased to $50 from $35. Last year, Food for Families collected $7,800 and fed more than 200 families. The cost to feed the same amount of families is now approximately $10,000.

Those interested in participating may continue to drop-off cash or check donations by Friday, Dec. 10. Donations will be accepted in the Partners in Education office, ESC Room 1460.  Please make checks payable to Katy ISD/Food for Families.

Families receiving assistance are nominated by their home campus with every Katy ISD campus participating.  For more information, contact Partners in Education at 281-396-2461. Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
