The recent floodwater that ravaged Kingwood neighborhoods and surrounding areas has been dubbed the Mother’s Day flood. The storms also took place during Teacher Appreciation Week, an apt time for school staff to really show the true meaning of community by caring for students stranded on their school campuses.The recent floodwater that ravaged Kingwood neighborhoods and surrounding areas has been dubbed the Mother’s Day flood. The storms also took place during Teacher Appreciation Week, an apt time for school staff to really show the true meaning of community by caring for students stranded on their school campuses.Long-time local owner of the Kingwood Garden Center and garden expert Carmen Bezner is passionate about doing her part to aid families and help students get back on their feet as quickly as possible. In order to accomplish this goal, she and community members have teamed up to collect items for area students.“We have a drop box at Kingwood Garden Center that is available during business hours to collect shoes for school-aged kids, both boys and girls shoes of any style ranging from size 1 1/2 to 9. In addition to helping our youngsters, we want to offer help in the form of unused gift cards to local and online businesses. These gifts are easy to give and mean so much to those that have been so heavily affected,” said Bezner.There is no dollar limit for the items or cards donated. Those wishing to donate can consider purchasing gift cards for restaurants, clothing merchants, book stores, grocery stores, furniture outlets and more. If interested in donating, find Kingwood Garden Center on Facebook, visit their website at kingwoodgardencenter.com, or call 281-358-1805. The garden center’s address is 1216 Stonehollow Drive in Kingwood. They are open from 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m.Visit the garden center, give to local families affected by the flood, and support this local business by buying products such as plants, pottery, fountains and more.
