Our Stuff the Truck event was a huge success! On Saturday, September 30, students, staff, and volunteers gathered outside of the Maya Schools to collect donations for victims of Hurricane Harvey. Churches, organizations, and individuals drove up to the curb with bags full of donations, ready to be loaded on the U-Haul Truck.
The energy on Saturday was contagious as members of the community united to help victims in Texas. Volunteers showed up early to prepare boxes, each labeled with the type of donation they held. As the day went on, teams of contributors drove up with truck-fulls of clothes, toys, and toiletries to donate. Long after the official event ended, volunteers still eagerly sorted clothes and filled boxes.
The day was triumphant for both the students we will be donating to at YES Public Charter School in Houston, Texas and our Maya family. Not only did we fill the entire U-Haul truck, but donations kept pouring in even after the truck was closed! It was inspiring to see the community come together to support hurricane victims. We are proud to have helped those affected by Hurricane Harvey. We want to send a special “thank you” to all of the Maya students who volunteered and those in the community who gave a helping hand. We couldn’t have done it without you. This event was a true example of the Maya Way!
