FirstLine Schools  NEW ORLEANS, LA
Tornadoes swept through New Orleans on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 causing residents and businesses to lose power and destroying many homes and businesses in New Orleans East. Many of these are the same neighborhoods hit hardest by Hurricane Katrina. 
FirstLine Schools developed this fund to support our staff and students who have been directly affected.  We would like to assist  with  basic needs, including temporary housing and personal expenses, especially since the area hasn't been declared a federal disaster zone yet. 

FirstLine Schools is a non-profit organization creating and inspiring great open admissions public charter schools in New Orleans. Our network of schools include: Samuel J Green Charter School,  Arthur Ashe Charter School, Langston Hughes Academy, Phillis Wheatley Community School and Joseph S. Clark Preparatory High School. 
 
At this time some households still have no power and it may be weeks before power is restored. We hope to provide up to $ 3,500 per family to assist with basic needs such as temporary housing, personal necessities, etc. The money donated will be distributed to those affected based on level of need.  

Please consider donating to our campaign and sharing it amongst your personal networks.  We greatly appreciate your contributions!

The pictures below are of Raquel Holloway's home. Raquel works at Langston Hughes Academy, and is a single mother. Though she owns her home, she didn't have homeowner's insurance at the time of the tornado. 100% of your donation will be provided to Raquel and others like her, as they continue to recover and rebuild. Please consider donating today. No amount is too big or too small.
