Help for Houston Dollar Donation Drive!
Sponsored by Abbotts Hill Student Council
With the recent devastation in Texas due to Hurricane Harvey, Student Council wanted to find a way to help. Our former Fulton County Deputy Superintendent, Dr. Scott Muri, leads Spring Branch Independent School District in Houston as the Superintendent. Many in his school district are suffering. Abbotts Hill will be collecting donations that will go directly to the SBI School District for aide and recovery. Please help us support families who have lost so much by bringing in single dollar bills. We could raise over $700 if each student just brought $1! Our “Dollar Donation Drive” will take place from September 19 through September 29. Thank you for your support.
