Hurricane Efforts

Students from Fort Worth Country Day and All Saints’ Episcopal School traveled to Dayton, Texas, on August 31 to deliver supplies to victims of Hurricane Harvey. Organized by FWCD parent Andy Edwards and his good friend, ASES parent Kyle Poulson, a group of 14 students made the trip to Andy’s hometown. Andy brought his son, Andrew ’24, to experience first-hand the impact of the group’s donation and the hard work that is required of those who are helping to rebuild the area.

Many in the FWCD community were aware of this trip and donated to the cause, thanks to Head of School Eric Lombardi’s eNewsletter highlighting Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Andy, having only planned the trip about 48 hours prior to departure, delivered SIX trailer loads of supplies to the Precinct 4 Liberty County Commissioner. “That’s what I love about our community,” Andy said. “People really stepped up, even with the short notice. These people are really amazing and so giving. I actually had to redirect donations before we left because our trailers were filled to the brim.”

For both Andy and Kyle, the best part of this humanitarian effort was the fact that the kids got to see first-hand the impact of the hurricane and their donations. “These kids rolled up their sleeves and went straight to work as soon as we got there,” Andy noted. Read more of the story in the
