On Friday, August 24, Jim Malain with Entergy delivered a check for $22,250 to be used by teachers throughout the Little Cypress-Mauriceville District for classroom supplies. 

 

One category of losses from Hurricane Harvey that is not covered by FEMA, is the tens of thousands of dollars in classroom resources that teachers have bought with their own money and collected through the years. This grant will help replace much of those items lost in the flood.

 

Although the photo was taken at Little Cypress Junior High, the funds will go to all teachers on the damaged campuses.
