Several of our friends and members have put together fund raising activities to assist people devastated by the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. USSSA has created this online donation page to showcase their efforts and provide a way for our community to lend support. If your swim school is providing outreach for hurricane relief, please contact the USSSA Team at 480-837-5525 to be included on this website. Thank you for your generosity!

FINS created the FINS Giving Tree as a way to help our FINS families, including team members, current FINS customers, and past FINS customers, as they recover from the devastation of Hurricane

Harvey. Each dot on the tree represents a gift card. When FINS receives the gift cards, we replace the colorful dots on the tree with a white gift card with the donors name on it. Each gift card is placed directly in the hands of customers we have spoken to that were affected by Hurricane Harvey.

During the first week of the giving tree, we collected over $1400 in Gift Cards from our generous FINS customers. We have a long list of families we want to help!

Please consider sending a gift card, in any amount, from Lowes, Home Depot, Target, Walmart, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Visa/MC/Amex, Amazon to:

FINS
Attn: Whitney Tutor
7827 Spring Cypress Road
Spring, Texas 77379

From the bottom of our big ‘ole Texas hearts, we say Thank you!
The FINS Family

Houston and surrounding communities were inundated with over 50 inches of rain during Hurricane Harvey’s rampage a few weeks ago. We are slowly but surely returning to our “new normal” with schools re-opening and homes and businesses being cleaned, repaired, or completely tearing down to begin rebuilding.

We get requests daily for help from our clients and even some staff who were affected by Harvey’s aftermath. Some requests are for temporary scholarships for lesson tuition, some are for swim suits and towels from evacuees who will be out of their homes for a while, some are simply for emotional support from parents who need to vent their frustrations! We have already begun the process of giving away many lessons to families who will likely be displaced, some likely for months, while their homes are being repaired or rebuilt.

We at HSC are truly touched by the outpouring of love and support from our swim school friends across the country!

Many of you have asked how you can help. We have decided to open a Go Fund Me account (https://www.gofundme.com/houston-swim-club-scholarship-fund) where you all can donate funds that will be used to help provide lesson scholarships to our many families who are requesting assistance.

Thank you, in advance, for helping Houston Swim Club and its families remain
#houstonstrong!
