We have had an impressive reaction from our Jr. Beta members in response to the disaster relief of Hurricane Harvey! I am overwhelmed with joy! Thank you so much for your efforts in paying it forward. I am so proud of each and every one of you for stepping up and either volunteering your precious time in helping with filling sandbags or sorting through the mounds of donations at local donation centers and to those that donated goods and supplies to help those in need. Your time and effort has not gone unnoticed! 
Jr. Beta's adopted classroom is an 8th grade classroom from Hodges Bend Middle School in Houston, TX. There are currently 375 8th graders on their campus. If anyone has not donated yet and would like to send school supplies to our adopted classroom, please send your donations to school this week. We will be shipping the donations out by the end of the week. 
Anyone that has donated thus far has received 20 service points for donating items or 25 service points for volunteering their time. Points have been marked for those that have sent me evidence (picture or list via text or email). Service points will be given out this week as students send in those supplies. 
Again, thank you so much! Let us lead by serving others!!!
