On August 28th, the SLES community began to grasp the widespread devastation and the magnitude of human needs resulting from Hurricane Harvey. The school united with the St. Luke’s parish and joined in the coordinated effort of the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas. On the morning of August 30th, families began donating personal hygiene items, cleaning supplies, baby supplies, water and snacks.
On Saturday, September 16th, SLES staff and middle school students delivered the items generously donated by St. Luke’s families. When the SLES team arrived in Port Aransas, two trucks full of needed supplies were waiting to be unloaded at the Port Aransas Recovery Supply Depot. With many hands ready to help, the supplies were unloaded in no time.
Head of School, Thomas McLaughlin reminded the school community, “As so many people move through the challenging months ahead, let us continue to carry them in our thoughts and prayers.”
The items provided by St. Luke’s families will be distributed throughout the coastal region.
