Recent hurricanes have impacted our country, and therefore our Summit Learning Community, in profound ways. The Summit Learning Program includes 26 schools in the Houston area, and a total of 35 schools in the larger Gulf region. We have been incredibly touched by the well wishes, notes for concern and desire to support from partners across the country. Thank you for being loving hands and feet for communities beyond your own.
We know that our Summit Learning schools in the affected areas may find themselves with additional needs when they return to school after the storm, such as replacement devices or school supplies. This GoFundMe page will support the effort to provide schools with the supplies they need to recover. Our Mentor team will work closely with all impacted schools to support the schools as needed during their transition back to school. If any funds remain after schools are all set, we will donate those funds directly to the Red Cross. There will surely be ongoing clean-up and relief efforts.
Thank you for reaching out to us and for your support of your Summit Learning colleagues who have been affected by the recent hurricanes. And may we continue to be kind and generous towards one another and together build the connected world we want for our students.
Summit Learning Mentor Team
- Geoff Osmun is a Summit Learning mentor and part of the broader Summit Learning team supporting schools in the Gulf Region. Summit Learning supports schools across the United States, including Massachusetts (hence Geoff's location being listed as "Somerville, MA."
- We are raising funds for Summit Learning schools in the Gulf Region who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. Funds from this campaign will be collected by Geoff Osmun's team at Summit Learning, transferred to a personal bank account, and then funds will be used to purchase items needed at affected schools through an equitable, "as needed" process. Once the process is complete, funds will be sent directly to schools from this personal bank account. Once the process is complete, if funds remain, the balance will be donated to the Red Cross relief effort.
