(Katy, Texas) – Katy ISD’s Partners in Education is delighted to announce that Food for Families raised $35,000 during its recent campaign. Supported by both the community and Katy ISD employees, this initiative provides grocery gift cards to students and families in need during the holiday season. Food for Families is an annual campaign that provides grocery gift cards to Katy ISD students and their families. This year, Food for Families also supported families who were impacted by Harvey.
Katy ISD campuses identify students in need of assistance, and gift cards are given to those students before winter break. Last year, Food for Families blessed 433 families. Since its inception in 2002, this initiative has raised almost $193,000, helping nearly 4,100 families have a happier holiday.
Food for Families, a Katy ISD Partners in Education yearly initiative, unites our Katy ISD staff and community in holiday support for select students and their families.
