Sensory Support and Activities Backpacks: Donations needed after Hurricane Harvey


Sensory Support and Activities Backpacks

So many families have been displaced and affected by Hurricane Harvey. Within the shelters, there are also many families of children with special needs. These families are without many necessary supports to help their children stay regulated, calm and occupied in shelters due to the large numbers, loud noises, and inconsistent daily routines. We would like to help by putting together backpacks with items that may provide a little bit of relief and happiness during this time.
Please help us by donating any of the following new or gently used items by Wednesday, September 6th. Items should be not be a choking hazard and not be able to fit in a toilet paper roll for safety reasons.

Drop off at 805 Rhode Place, Suite 350 Houston TX 77019 or with an employee of Family First or Kids Connect.

Fidget toys
Weighted Blankets or Items
Earplugs or noise cancelling headphones
Coloring books
Stress balls
Squishy balls
Dot to dot activity books
Scented markers
Stuffed animals

Thank you so much for supporting us! We look forward to sharing pictures of our finished backpacks!

Warmest Regards,
Family First Speech and Kids Connect Occupational Therapy Staff
