Story Highlights

The Rev. David Holland, interim rector at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Waco, called with an appeal. St. Alban’s in Waco is collecting $$ donations to provide school supplies for the school children of West, TX. St. Alban’s in Waco is one of the closest Episcopal churches to the town of West, devasted by fire and explosion on April 17. Connally ISD and other local districts are making preparation for West ISD students to resume school on Monday. Furniture, classroom supplies, technology, teacher hospitality, transportation and staffing are being coordinated in a massive effort to serve the West community.

Students and teachers of West ISD need school supplies to restart their learning in a new space and finish the school year because of the damage to West schools. You can help by donating online at the St. Alban’s website http://www.stalbanswaco.org/givenow.html and in the “message” field indicate that your donation is for “West children, school supplies, etc. as needed.”

If you wish to mail a check, post it to St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, 305 N. 30th St., Waco, TX 76710.
