NCEA Expands "Student to Student" Fundraising Campaign

NCEA’s campaign for Hurricane Harvey relief embraces additional Catholic schools in hurricane-affected areas.

Arlington, VA — Relief efforts due to Hurricane Harvey are underway in Texas and Louisiana and now we believe Hurricane Irma has affected additional Catholic school communities.

The National Catholic Educational Association’s (NCEA) fundraising campaign, Student to Student: A Catholic School Response to Hurricane Harvey, launched on September 1, will be expanded to include Catholic school communities also affected by Hurricane Irma and the campaign has been renamed "Student to Student: A Catholic School Response for Hurricane Relief 2017."

Catholic schools are finding imaginative ways to contribute to the Student to Student 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.

There are more than 6,400 Catholic schools and nearly 1.9 million Catholic school students in the United States.

You can make a donation or get more information about this campaign online.
