SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - San Diego Unified School District is teaming up with Council of the Great City Schools to get clean clothing and school supplies to Houston area schools affected by Hurricane Harvey.

SDUSD is asking San Diegans to send donations of clothing of all sizes, school uniforms, and school supplies to aid the Houston Independent School District.

Any clothing should be in clean and reasonably good condition. Donations should be sent to: Delmar Stadium, 2020 Mangum Road, Houston, TX, 77092

Another way to provide immediate help is to donate to the HISD Foundation here.

"Some 50 of the Houston schools have been flooded, and many families are staying in other less-damaged schools and children do not have extra clothes or school supplies," a SDUSD release said. "Many families have lost their home and most of their belongings."
