Members of our Harlingen CISD family are wasting no time in doing what is right for those in need across our state. HCISD students, parents, staff and members of our #HCISDproud community have begun collecting necessary items to send to areas impact by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.

Items are being collected at various HCISD campuses and our district’s Aquatic Center located at 315 N. 77 Sunshine Strip. 

HCISD has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of the Rio Grande Valley to collect these items as they have the capacity to store and ship large quantities of aid.
