July 16, 2021 — The Midland ISD Family Support Center has received a $2,000 grant that will help the center continue supporting students and families in need.
The money provided by Superior HealthPlan will fund hygiene kits that contain essential items such as laundry detergent, soap, shampoo, and deodorant.
"This grant will enable us to continue providing support to students and families in need," said Chalace Phillips, Family Support Specialist. "These funds will directly provide hygiene kits for about 100 families, and we're incredibly grateful for this boost from Superior HealthPlan."
The Family Support Center began operation this year originally as a referral service but has since expanded to provide supplies to students and families in need. All supplies are made possible through donations made either in-person or via the center's Amazon wishlist
The Family Support center hosts walk-in hours every Thursday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the District Service Center, 615 W. Missouri Ave.
