At HMH, our thoughts are with those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. In Texas and Louisiana, thousands of schools, libraries, community centers and more have experienced severe damage and loss due to catastrophic flooding and unprecedented rain. This devastation has touched members of the HMH family, from educators to students to employees, and HMH is here to support those impacted.
The school community has the power to provide comfort and stability for students in the midst of the disasters like Hurricane Harvey. Much work ahead is needed to repair and rebuild, and HMH is committed to being a partner in that process.
Today, HMH has committed a $25,000 donation to the Red Cross in support of the immediate relief efforts in the Texas and Louisiana. In addition, HMH is working with our longtime partner First Book to deliver book donations to local organizations once damages and needs have been assessed.
For those schools affected by Hurricane Harvey, HMH will provide dedicated customer support to address their urgent needs to ensure they can put their primary focus on supporting their students. Assistance can be provided by calling 800-291-2187; 8am-5pm CT.
Educators can also find resources on the HMH blog on how to help students in times of natural disasters and trauma.
HMH will continue to work with directly with schools and in partnership with nonprofit organizations to offer help now and in the months ahead.
