Help Families Affected By Hurricanes


Demme Learning wants to help any homeschooling families affected by hurricane Harvey or Irma.

Within the last few weeks, hurricanes have been hitting areas of the United States, leaving families to abandon their home and belongings. Hurricane Harvey devastated areas from Houston to Louisiana, and this past weekend, Hurricane Irma hit South Florida; both hurricanes are continuing to wreak havoc on the families in the affected areas – but you can help.

How You Can Help Others

There are many organizations accepting general donations for displaced families and victims of the storms. Please join us by keeping all of these families in your thoughts and prayers. For anyone wanting to help provide specific relief to homeschool families impacted by these hurricanes, you can do so by donating to the following organizations:

Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund (THSC)

The Home School Foundation (HSLDA) – for Harvey relief

The Home School Foundation (HSLDA) – for Irma relief

Helping Homeschool Families Affected by Harvey (Facebook Group)

How Demme Learning Can Help You

For any homeschool family affected by Hurricane Harvey or Irma who need to replace their Math-U-See or Spelling You See curriculum, please contact us at customerservice@demmelearning.com or 888-854-6284. A customer service member can help you in one of the following ways:

• We can provide you with a digital access code for your Math-U-See Instruction materials. This includes videos, a pdf of the Instruction Manual, digital manipulatives and a link to the online worksheet generator for your level.

• We have a limited supply of gently used or clearance materials available for donation on a first come, first served basis.

• Once those materials are gone, we will be working with customers to provide new materials at an appropriate discount on a case-by-case basis. We are flexible and will be simply requesting that customers pay what they feel they can. Our customer service team will work with you to make sure you get what you need for your homeschool without causing you any additional hardship.

Results

We have been working together at Demme Learning to help our customers get back on their feet after being hit by one of the several tropical storms that disturbed the United States within the last few months. Several customers have already reached out to us about their lost or damaged curriculum, and we were eager to help in any way we could. Although the curriculum discounts and donations are not as expansive as our emotional support, we hope it provides assistance and comfort.

Demme Learning puts a copious amount of value in families. In fact, our first core value is Faithful Families. We agree that families are a fundamental building block of a civil society. With that being said, we felt an urge to continue supporting relief to not just homeschool families, but others victim as well.

The books and blocks came in the mail today, and the kids were so delighted. My oldest got to work right away in her workbook!
 
Thank y’all so much. It was o generous of you to replace our lost curriculum. We are truly grateful.

We organized our own hurricane relief effort, and are pleased to donate the following:

• 3 cleanup buckets
• 2 Hygene Kits
• $100 combined employee + company donation to Helping Homeschool Families Affected by Harvey
