Holy Cross students donate money to hurricane victims

First slide

Holy Cross Academy in Fredericksburg participated in the National Catholic Education Association’s Student to Student: A Catholic School Response to Hurricane Relief 2017 program to assist the victims of the recent hurricanes. Each student was asked to bring in $1. NCEA guaranteed that the money would be given to children in afflicted areas. 

 

As students brought in their donations, they wrote their names on a sun, which became part of a mural of sunlight for the victims of the hurricanes.

Donations from the students totaled $864.36. Along with daily prayers for those impacted by the storms and those working to help them, the students sought to do their part to help people in the South rebuild their homes and schools.
