Now through Friday, Oct. 20, Chaminade will be collecting monetary donations for Colegio San José – a Marianist all-boys school near San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Hurricane Maria caused many challenges the school's families will continue to face in the days to come. Colegio San José has identified emergency financial aid for those families as the most immediate need.
The school was founded by Marianists in 1938 and serves more than 450 students in grades 7-12. No students, parents, or faculty members lost their lives due to Hurricane Maria, but the storm did damage or destroy their homes, cut off a flow of daily necessities, and left some parents without work.
Students are encouraged to donate to The Hurricane Maria Relief Fund in homeroom. Cash, coins, and checks made payable to Chaminade High School will all be accepted. Every dollar raised will go directly to Colegio San José.
