As Dallas ISD continues to lend a helping hand to families displaced by Hurricane Harvey who are now arriving in the City of Dallas, the district is collecting donations of uniforms, school supplies and backpacks for students expected to enroll in district schools.

Donations may be dropped off at Dallas ISD’s Education Center, 9400 N. Central Expressway, Dallas, TX 75231, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. today through Friday, Sept. 8 (with the exception of Labor Day on Monday, Sept. 4). The drop-off area is available on the first floor of the building.

Those who wish may also purchase school supplies for the affected students via this link. The organization code is: DAL032.

Uniforms of all sizes are needed: white-collared shirts, khaki pants and brown or black belts. School supplies and backpacks for K-12 grades are also being accepted.

Anyone wishing to serve as a volunteer must also register using the Dallas ISD volunteer application, which is available at dallasisd.voly.org.

To make a general monetary donation to the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, the United Way of Dallas is accepting donations at unitedwaydallas.org/harveyrelief/. To volunteer at the Dallas Convention Center, visit voly.org/.
