$100,000! Hurricane Harvey floodwaters wreaked havoc in many parts of Kingwood, including the Town Center Randalls. After 82 days of being closed, Randalls opened its store with a grand re-opening and ribbon-cutting celebration on Wednesday, Nov. 15.
“As with many other home and business owners, we’ve been hard at work rebuilding. We’re excited to be back open for Kingwood and know they will enjoy our fresh, updated store and the addition of a new Starbucks with a large seating area,” said Sidney Hopper, Randalls president.
During the ceremony, Randalls presented a $100,000 check to the Humble ISD Education Foundation. “When we saw the devastation Kingwood High School suffered by floodwaters, and heard of the innovative plan by Humble ISD to merge those students and teachers with Summer Creek High School, we were moved to help,” said Hopper. The funds will support needs related to Hurricane Harvey in Humble ISD, in particular at Kingwood High School and Summer Creek High School.”
“Humble ISD is greatly appreciative of business partners like Randalls. Although Randalls faced its own challenges with Hurricane Harvey, they are stepping up to support local Humble ISD schools. Like Randalls, Humble ISD has faced its own Hurricane Harvey challenges and these funds will help to find innovative solutions to those challenges. We are thrilled that our community is getting back to normal and having Randalls open in Kingwood is a big step to getting to that normalcy,” said Dr. Elizabeth Fagen, Humble ISD superintendent of schools.
