Harmony School Flood Recovery & Rebuilding Fund
There are numerous ways in which you can help support the mission of Harmony School. Year-round, we participate in several programs that “give back” to the community and a few times per year, we organize and hold fundraising events. We are always open to new ideas for generating financial support that helps keep tuition affordable.
In October 2015, South Carolina was impacted by a catastrophic historic flood and our community, Forest Acres, was one of the most devastated areas. As a result, Harmony School suffered significant damage. Our playground was several feet underwater and the famous flood took out our wood seating, picnic tables and a large section of our wooden fencing. A few inches of standing water caused some serious damage in our preschool. As a result, the entire building has been gutted up to the 4-foot mark and will be renovated. Once the construction is complete, our building will be upgraded to current fire/safety and ADA requirements. We are fortunate that a large portion of the costs will eventually be paid by insurance. However, there is still a great need for donations so that we can afford the out of pocket expenses of at least $25,000. Please consider giving to our “Famous Flood” Fund – gifts of any amount are much needed and will put us one step closer to moving our students back into their large, spacious classrooms!
