Sensory Support and Activity Backpacks

So many families have been displaced and affected by Hurricane Harvey.  Within the shelters, there are also many families of children with special needs.  These families are without many necessary supports to help their children stay regulated, calm and occupied in shelters due to the large numbers, loud noises, and inconsistent daily routines.  We would like to help by putting together backpacks with items that may provide a little bit of relief and happiness during this time.  

Please help us by donating any of the following new or gently used items by Wednesday, September 6th.  Items should be not be a choking hazard and not be able to fit in a toilet paper roll for safety reasons.  

 

Drop off at 805 Rhode Place, Suite 350 Houston TX 77019 or with an employee of Family First or Kids Connect.
