St. Madeleine Students accept the NCEA Student to Student Disaster Relief challenge.

Student to Student – A St. Madeleine Sophie School Challenge

Our hearts and prayers are with Catholic schools and all those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. In keeping with our mission to serve others, the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) has launched a campaign asking every Catholic school family around the country to contribute at least $1 per student to help Catholic schools impacted by the storm to rebuild, reopen and re-enroll students. “Student to Student: A Catholic School Response to Hurricane Relief” is a powerful opportunity to engage students in living the Gospel message of compassionate service and generosity to others.

Through this initiative, NCEA is asking for contributions from students and families enrolled in all Catholic schools to assist their peers. The goal for our school is $200.  Should we reach that goal, a generous donor has offered to match that amount giving us a total of $400!

Here’s how you can help:

  1. We will kick off our collection drive on Wednesday, September 13. All students, parents, parishioners and other supporters are invited to participate.
  2. We are asking for a contribution of at least $1 for each student from families who wish to give. If you are sending funds via a check, please make it out to St. Madeleine’s.  A single check will be written from St. Madeleine’s to the NCEA and mailed on Monday, October 2.
  3. Please return your contribution to your child’s classroom in an envelope marked “Student to Student.”

NCEA will distribute 100% of the funds collected to dioceses in the affected areas for their Catholic schools in vital need of support due to the impact of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Individual donations can be made online at www.ncea.org/NCEA/donate.

Thanks in advance for support and prayers.
