Astros Community Leader Occidental will deliver school supplies donated by its employees to four Houston ISD elementary schools on Wednesday, September 25. As a sponsor of the Astros Foundation’s Community Leader program and the Denver Harbor Park Little League, Oxy has chosen two schools within the Denver Harbor community as well as two in the southeast area, including R Martinez Elementary School, Eliot Elementary School, Woodson K-5 and Young Elementary School. These schools were selected as beneficiaries because of the frequency of students visiting Denver Harbor Park as well as the percentage of homeless students who attend those schools in the southeast area. Executives from the Astros Foundation, HISD and Occidental will be on-hand for the presentation.
WHEN: Tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 25 @11:30 a.m.
WHERE: Raul Martinez Elementary School / 7211 Market Street / Houston, TX 77020
