It’s a Wrap (green foil wrap to be specific)!

We are proud to say our first Viper SPED Booster Club fundraiser is officially in the books and it was a whopping success!  We sold 700 beautiful plants grown for us by the capable adults of the Brookwood Community in Brookshire, Texas, ensuring that 100% of the money spent went to supporting the endeavors of people with special needs.

The inclement weather in Austin on Saturday, December 3, led to an elaborately planned and executed new plan in order to protect the plants (& volunteers!) from spending several hours in an open parking lot awaiting pick up in the pouring rain.  Working just a few days ahead of the impending landscaping truck’s arrival from Houston on Saturday the board was able to secure staging locations in various homes’ garages and a volunteer staff of drivers and plant runners comprised of SPED & AD Team parents and AD Teams from VHS & CRMS.

600 poinsettias were hand-delivered to people’s homes and businesses on Saturday and another 100 to teachers at CRMS & VHS on Monday.  It was a lovely sight to behold, witnessing the joy that was spread in both the CRMS and VHS communities as our SPED students and AD Team members made their deliveries.
