Many of you have asked how you, or family and friends, can help St. Mary School in our recovery from hurricane Florence.
We are blessed that after 3 weeks out of school, our students were able to return to classes last week. However, our historic campus suffered major damage. Consolidating operations by combining classes into a single building has gone smoothly. It is not an ideal situation, but we are hopeful that this is a very short term situation.
Although insurance will cover the building restoration, teaching tools, and many other expenses, our teachers spent hundreds of dollars out-of-pocket preparing their classrooms for this school year—much of which was destroyed by Hurricane Florence. Your help is needed more than ever.
Many of our teachers and school families affected by the storm can’t afford to help because they’re recovering from damages or the loss of their homes and personal possessions. We understand. However, to those who are able, we ask that you consider a contribution to the fund to be distributed as needed to our classrooms and faculty.
Your gift today will help get the school year back on track, which is vital to bringing a sense of normalcy to our community.
