I am posting this blog in the hopes that I can get into contact with someone from your church. My name is Erica Kouros and I am a part of KAOS Worldwide and the Texas Kaos Girls Softball Team here in Houston. We are shipping out to you in the next day or two many boxes including some of your needs.

I wanted to speak with someone so that we can connect and make sure that you get our donations to your cause. Please email me at erica.kouros@fortbendisd.com. I hope that our contribution as a group is of some help to you during this time.
