Randalls reopens, gives $100K to Humble ISD

Randalls celebrating its re-opening in Kingwood by donating $100,000 to Humble I.S.D.

KINGWOOD, Texas - A local school district still reeling from Hurricane Harvey got a big donation Wednesday morning.

As part of Randalls' reopening in Kingwood, the store presented a $100,000 check to Humble ISD.

Funds that will go towards helping the district rebuild some of their hard-hit schools, including Kingwood High School.

The school’s orchestra even took part in the celebrations. Despite facing its own challenges during the storm, Randalls representatives say they were moved by the district's resiliency and wanted to help.

It's a gesture Humble ISD says they’re grateful for.

“That’s an incredible amount of money and generous donation from such a prominent member of our community who suffered great loss also, and it would do so much good in both Kingwood and Summer Creek high schools,” said Elizabeth Fagen, Superintendent, Humble ISD.

Kingwood High School took on upwards of $63 million in damages. Since September, Kingwood High students have been going to school with Summer Creek High students. But they’ll be back in their own building by March 2018.
