Buckner delivers school supplies for displaced students due to the Dallas tornadoes

Yesterday, Buckner International delivered school supplies and hygiene products to Thomas Edison Middle Learning Center for displaced students from Thomas Jefferson High School, which is closed for the remainder of the school year due to the significant damage it received from the tornado that hit Dallas on Oct. 20. 

Supplies included binders, spiral notebooks, packs of writing paper, folders, pencils, pens, expo markers, bars of soap and bottles of shampoo. 

Buckner has ministries in the affected areas and many families who participate in the Buckner Family Hope Center at Bachman Lake were affected by the storms

"Buckner has a strong presence in Bachman Lake and we are committed to helping our neighbors in their time of need," said Steve Watson, director of aid and assistance at the Buckner Center for Humanitarian Aid. "We know that it will take time to rebuild homes, schools and lives, but we hope to ease the process and take away some of the day-to-day concerns like needing school supplies or hygiene products."

Buckner will deliver supplies and aid to two other Dallas Independent School District schools later this week.
