Schools and Student Councils in Texas need our help!
This is from Terry Hamm, Executive Director of the Texas Association of Student Councils.
“I am receiving emails from TASC advisors and NASSCED (Executive Directors) friends asking about plans TASC will make to help our members affected by Harvey and what they can do.
Thank you so very much.
A few years ago TASC made the determination to mount coordinated efforts to help member schools adversely affected by natural disasters. We wanted our help to go directly to teachers and schools impacted, and we wanted student councils to have a voice in how donations would be spent.
Right the devastation is so vast that we cannot begin to determine where the need is greatest.
We will make a plan. In the meantime, if your Heart urges you to help, please begin fundraising efforts. We will have plans soon.
If you are part of TASC, please share the post.
God bless (and help) Texas.”
At this time, PASC will begin a fundraising campaign for our fellow Student Councils and schools that have been devastated by Harvey!
Please share fundraising ideas or images of fundraising efforts with firstname.lastname@example.org and check back often for updates.
What can PASC do? Right now it is all about fundraising, and “Adopting a School!”
Go to www.tasconline.org to see what Schools need.
Multiple schools can adopt one school.
Harvey Fund-Raising Opportunities
Can you think of a project that could help you as a SC raise money in your school?
Something really easy: What about selling links of RED, White and Blue (Texas colors) and charge $1 or $2 to have students send thoughts or prayers to a school. Put the chain of links together and add our PASC COLORS (BLUE AND GOLD) to the links with messages from your SC members/PASC. I will get you an address that your chain of links can be sent to whenever things turn "normal" again.
There is also a way to raise money to donate if you want to sell shirts.
If you chose to raise money and send to PASC, we will get it to needy schools and projects that the ED of Texas tells us about. Make check payable to PASC, and write Donation for TEXAS on message line.
