Earlier this year, we watched with concern as the COVID-19 outbreak began to disrupt the entire world, including our community.
Although we did not know what the coming weeks and months would hold, we knew that our community needed us. And we needed you.
We launched the NEISD Community COVID-19 Relief Fund to provide direct financial support to North East ISD families experiencing severe economic hardship due to the pandemic.
In just a few weeks, we raised more than $22,000 from individuals and business partners – like Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union (RBFCU) who generously donated a $5,000 check.
The Astorga Family is one of the more than 300 families who received a gift card to purchase groceries and essential items.
“Every little bit that everyone gives goes a long way,” NEISD parent Ana Astorga said. “Nobody knows what you can bless someone with, and I just want to say ‘thank you.’”
NEISD parent Jessica Willis was also elated and thankful to receive a gift card.
“I am truly grateful for this support because I didn’t even know how I was going to get through the week,” Willis said. “So, it really came at a perfect time.”
A sincere thank you to all of our supporters who helped our community during this challenging time.
