Having launched on September 1, 2017, NCEA’s fundraising “Student to Student” campaign has continued to raise support for those residing in the areas affected by the recent hurricanes in more ways than one.
Recently, NCEA has been receiving packages stuffed to the brim with prayers, letters, cards and hand-drawn pictures from students across the nation – sending their good intentions via messages of safety, blessing and good intentions.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with all the communities that have been affected by the recent storms over the past month, including most recently those in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. NCEA is reaching out to these areas to determine how Catholic schools have been impacted, and is extending the Student to Student campaign to provide additional opportunities and time for Catholic school students and schools to help those in need.
Here is how you can help:
- Select a day for “Student to Student: A Catholic School Response for Hurricane Relief 2017.” Alert parents, parishioners and other supporters through your newsletters, parish bulletins and websites.
- Collect at least $1 for each student from families who wish to give. Then prepare a single check made payable to NCEA and include “Student to Student Campaign” in the memo line. Designate where you wish the funds to be applied on the donation form.
- Mail the check and updated form provided by October 30 to: NCEA, Student to Student Campaign, P.O. Box 63392, Charlotte, NC 28263-3392.
NCEA will distribute 100 percent of the funds collected to dioceses in the affected areas for their Catholic school communities in vital need of support due to the impact of the hurricanes.
Please continue to pray for those affected by the recent storms, and we urge you to participate in the Student to Student campaign.
