The Hurricane Helpers, comprised of eleven students in my daughter’s elementary school, adopted an elementary school in New Jersey affected by Hurricane Sandy and raised $2100.00 yesterday by asking for donations of gift cards and cash. The Hurricane Helpers are helping 21 families in New Jersey who lost their homes to Hurricane Sandy. The Hurricane Helpers is part of a community service project through our local MAC Program. Here is a photo of Nora and a friend after many hours of talking to people about the Hurricane Helpers project and asking for donations. Check out those smiles! So proud of our kids and proud of our MAC cluster enrichment programs. 🙂
p.s. If you’re interested in creating your own Hurricane Helpers fundraiser in your school, let me know by replying to this post.
