Katy ISD announced it is extending the deadline for its annual Food for Families campaign to Friday, Dec. 10.
Katy ISDâ€™s Partners in Education works to spread holiday cheer with this annual fundraiser that provides support to Katy ISD families in need.Â The goal this year is to raise $10,000 â€“ enough to provide one meal to 200 families.
â€œWe initially launched Food for Families as a means for Katy ISD administrators to offer tangible support for district students in need,â€ said Janet Theis, Katy ISD Partners in Education Specialist.Â â€œLast 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.â€
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.Â 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.Â For more information, contact Partners in Education at 281-396-2461. Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
