The Kids In Need Foundation is monitoring the path and impact of the numerous instances of flooding across the Midwest and Central States. With rescue efforts underway and even completed in some areas, we applaud the efforts of the first responders who provide initial relief with food and shelter and emergency operations. Physical safety and well-being of all those affected is critical in the earliest hours.
When the waters subside, our Second Responder® program will be there to provide school supplies to students and teachers and help them recover from the wreckage of the water’s path. Second Responder serves as a conduit between the public wishing to support schools’ recovery and local districts who can best articulate their needs. We have provided these relief efforts to many communities, including after Hurricanes Katrina, Harvey, Irma, and Maria, and more recently after Florence and Michael, and the Alabama Tornado.
In the coming weeks, the Kids In Need Foundation will help deliver the critical classroom supplies needed to reopen the schools and help students’ lives return to normal. Please give to support the teachers and students affected by these floods and help ensure that Second Responder teams can mobilize quickly to respond to future natural disasters.
Your support will help get students and teachers back into the classrooms as quickly as possible. Thank you for your help.
