Beginning on September 1st, the staff, faculty, students, and Walker Valley High School Community will be collecting money and items to assist in the relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Harvey that has severely damaged the Gulf coast states of Texas and Louisiana.   

 

Students at Walker Valley will be able to contribute funds in their MAP classes for this effort.  Our Student Government and Opportunity Club members will be collecting every day during these times and 100% of the collections will go to the American Red Cross.  We are also collecting the following items in several classrooms throughout the building:

  • diapers
  • baby wipes
  • canned food
  • toiletry items (especially travel-size items such as deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.)
  • Bath towels
  • Cleaning supplies (Clorox wipes, paper towels, scrub brushes, spray cleaner, etc)
  • Laundry detergent
  • paper plates and plastic cutlery
  • batteries
  • Clothing in good condition
  • Other items to assist in the cleaning process

 

Our school store, The Stable, will also be donating 20% of all sales to the Red Cross.
