Montgomery County Public Schools is partnering with the Montgomery County Public Schools Educational Foundation, Inc to help raise money for students and families affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

The campaign titled, “Hurricane Relief Fund,” officially kicked off on Sept. 7 and will end on Oct. 7.

The district’s goal is to raise at least $1 per student to support school districts in Texas and Florida, according to a news release.

“We must support all children and help each other in times of crisis,” Superintendent Jack Smith, said in a statement.  “MCPS is committed to supporting the victims of hurricanes Harvey and Irma.”
