Dear Parents, Guardians, and Friends,
The recent events involving devastation wrought by multiple hurricanes in the Caribbean and Florida have been all over the news, and left many of us speechless in the process. As we watch from the comfort of our own Northern homes, it is too easy to feel these events are far away, but just as easy to think about the Northeasters, snowstorms, and ice storms that we have encountered over the years. Many of us have connections in Houston, Miami, or even the various smaller islands affected by the recent storms and have heard first hand accounts of the struggles now confronting these people.
Thinking about the "Empathy" part of our Seacoast Community C.A.R.E.S. commitment, the administrators here at school came up with two great options for donations; one, a larger organization that is specifically targeted toward helping child care operations in the US, and a second smaller organization in The US Virgin Islands using a YouCaring crowdfunding source. Everyone knows how important it is to parents, guardians, and grandparents to have effective operating child care available - and it is more so in this situation. It frees parents up to do the tremendous work of cleaning and rebuilding, which in turn helps children stay free from various hazards and diseases.
We hope you will find a way to support those in need during this widespread crisis. Below are the website links you can click on. Helping these organizations will only be a small step, but certainly an important one in caring for those in need.
Virgin Islands Montessori:
All the best,
