A message from Association Montessori International, USA
As you all know, Hurricane Harvey has devastated the SE Texas region. Many of our Montessori families, staff and children will be impacted by the flooding that has occurred. The Affiliates of AMI in the US are joining together in an effort to coordinate funds and resources to support those who have lost so much.
We have set up a PayPal account in order to collect funds for these efforts. You may donate using the link below.
MAA is coordinating the collection of funds into a designated account to be distributed to schools once the storm passes and the damage is assessed. The AMI Affiliates will act in good faith to use these funds to provide substantive support to as many Montessori school communities as possible. Specific amounts will be determined based on funds available, individual school needs and the larger identified needs of Montessori schools in the greater Houston area. We will continue to update you once we determine the process of how and to whom funds will be distributed.
If you are aware of schools impacted by this storm, please contact Jan Deason. She is a past MAA board member and will be coordinating our efforts.
In this week, the birthday of Dr. Montessori, it seems fitting for us to join together in an effort to support members of our Montessori family in need.
Please contact Michele Shane if you have any questions.
