School Uniforms Donated By Stars, Rangers

UNIFORMS DONATED BY STARS AND RANGERS
Teams earmark dollars for Gulf Coast' students now in Dallas

(Dallas, TX-September 6, 2005) -- The Texas Rangers and Dallas Stars today contributed $25,000 to the Dallas Independent School District to fund school uniforms for children who are now in Dallas because of Hurricane Katrina. DISD now has a district-wide policy requiring school uniforms for students. More than 255 children began classes today in DISD.

"We were told that having the right clothes will help reassure and comfort the children who are facing a new environment, classmates and teachers," said Thomas O. Hicks, owner of the Major League Baseball and National Hockey League franchises. "If you feel comfortable, you can fit in and be part of the team. We understand that."

"This donation will definitely help the youngsters blend into each school," said Donny Claxton, spokesperson for the district. "Their first day of school is also the first day of the rest of their lives, and we know this gift will be much appreciated."

School officials said they are moving quickly to get attire to every new student. Buses took the new students and their parents from Reunion Arena to the DISD schools this morning. The district offered a grace period for all of the usual requirements and paperwork needed to enroll at a new school.

"Our teams have been looking for ways to make a difference for the victims of Hurricane Katrina," said Mr. Hicks. "The players are hoping to find other ways to provide hope and smiles to the evacuees who are now in North Texas."
