Rebuild Port Aransas Design39Campus Fundraiser for Hurricane Victims

Immediately after Hurricane Harvey devastated parts of Texas, D39C classes started brainstorming ways to help. A local neighbor had family connections to Port Aransas, Texas, a small island community of about 3,000. The residents lost 60% of their homes and many structures, including the schools, suffered damage. With this personal connection, teachers saw an opportunity for students to witness the impact their efforts make in helping others.

The TK-8 students started with a "call to action" to #RebuildPortA and participated in a project launch around a theme of building community, inside and outside of D39C. The students came up with a rummage sale which included costumes, sports equipment, books, toys, lemonade and baked goods, a slime-making station, succulent garden, and hand-made masks. On October 6th from 2-5pm the campus hosted the #RebuildPortA Fundraiser. All proceeds will go to Port Aransas hurricane victims.

Staff, students, and volunteers all pitched in to buy and sell.
The sports equipment booth was a popular one.
The deals were hot!
Supply could hardly keep up with demand!
The sales people were irresistible!
Make-your-own succulent garden
Slime station

Amy Fousek, Teacher: "We are incredibly proud of the D39C students for elevating humanity by thoughtfully and empathetically supporting each other locally and globally."
