Relief efforts due to Hurricane Harvey are underway in Texas and Louisiana and now Hurricane Irma may have affected additional Catholic school communities.

NCEA’s fundraising “Student to Student” campaign, launched on September 1, 2017, will continue to support the areas affected by Hurricane Harvey and will now be expanded to include Catholic school communities damaged by Hurricane Irma. Going forward, the campaign will be referred to as "Student to Student: A Catholic School Response for Hurricane Relief 2017."

Catholic schools are finding imaginative ways to contribute to the campaign. From car washes to “Jeans Days” to buckets to collect loose change, the fund continues to grow as Catholic schools push to meet the challenge to collect the equivalent of at least $1 from every Catholic school family across the country.

Here is a reminder of how you can help:

  1. Select a day (preferably by October 13) 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Mail the check and updated form provided by October 20 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.

More information on these activities and the Student to Student Campaign is available online.

Thank you for your support and prayers.
