NEISD comes together to support local families

Woodstone students

Woodstone students worked hard to bring in multiple boxes of food, hygiene items, and clothing.

Beginning in November, the McKinney-Vento Homeless Project began their annual district-wide holiday drive to support homeless North East ISD students and their families. Once the initial invitation for campus and student group participation was sent, the McKinney Project received an overwhelming response from across the district.

At the conclusion of the drive, the McKinney Project had 39 campuses and student groups donate over 3,500 cans of food, 400 items of clothing and over 500 hygiene items. Due to this gracious effort by all of the participants, the program will be able to raise the level of support for our NEISD families in need.
