Donations to Hilliard Elementary

Most of us were affected by Harvey one way or another, but have managed to move on.  Others in the community are not so fortunate.  FOTP was able to purchase and donate uniforms and food to Hilliard Elementary with the kind donations from our network of friends.

Hilliard Elementary has a "Kids Closet" which they use to collect shoes and uniforms, socks, underwear, etc. and in turn issue to students that have needs.  They also stock a food pantry so that kids may bring non-perishable goods home in the evening or weekends.  Funds raised from our "Adult Homecoming Party" (fall event) allowed us to make these donations possible.
