Carroll ISD Hosts Gift Card Drive for Hurricane Harvey Victims

Sep 13, 2017 07:53AM ● Published by Audrey Sellers

For the second-annual Give Back Challenge, Carroll ISD is collecting gift cards for good. The district invites all 11 campuses to collect as many gift cards as possible to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Campuses can collect gift cards through Friday, September 15, when the winner will be announced during the game at Dragon Stadium. The campus with the largest quantity of gift cards (based on a percentage of overall student enrollment), will be named the year’s Compassion Cup winner. The winner will be based on quantity, not dollar amount raised.

Ozarka is taking the challenge one step further—it will donate one half-liter bottle of Ozarka® Brand Water and $1 (up to a maximum total of $5,000 and 5,000 bottles) for every gift card collected by CISD under this program.

Each gift card should be at least a $5 value, and all gift cards should be labeled with the dollar amount when dropped off at the front office of each campus or the administration building. The most-needed gift cards include Visa/MasterCard/ AMEX, Walmart, Target, Kroger, H-E-B, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Walgreens, CVS, and fast food restaurants.

Going to the home opener at Dragon Stadium? Carroll and Rockwall fans are invited to donate gift cards on Friday night. Volunteers will be at the home and visitor entrances to collect donations. The gift cards will be sent to Southeast Texas school districts.
