Review for Irving Schools Foundation, Irving, TX, USA
The Irving Schools Foundation (ISF) is an organization that truly gives back to students and staff. I was especially impressed by the way ISF responded from the time schools closed because of the pandemic to this very day.
To begin, ISF has provided over $12,000 worth of gift cards for our families to be able to purchase groceries. In addition, ISF has provided over 700 drawstring bags with school supplies for our students to begin the year. They have also provided uniforms for our students in need, classroom supplies for our teachers, a backpack, with school supplies, give-a-way, scholarships for graduating seniors, scholarships for teachers to further their education, grants for classroom projects, grants for teachers to attend seminar and conferences, and a Christmas event for some of our families in need. In reality, anything that our students need to be successful, we know that we can reach out to the Irving Schools Foundation and they will do everything that they possibly can to acquire what is needed.
I keep repeating the story of a mother who cried when I told her that she would receive one of the gift cards provided by ISF. In tears she blessed us because she said that she only had three canned goods left and she was trying to figure out how to ration those cans knowing that her children were hungry.
We are truly blessed to have the Irving Schools Foundation in our district. I don't know what our families would have done since the pandemic began if they wouldn't have had the support from ISF. I donate to the Irving Schools Foundation because I believe in them and I know that they give it back to the community. I wish more people knew about this wonderful foundation, and the marvelous work they are doing, and become an ISF donor.
