Over the past few weeks, destruction has hit numerous places around the world. As part of the global community, Budlong feels the pain of this devastation affecting our family, friends, and even that of strangers being directly impacted. We need to help, and to involve our students and school community, Friends of Budlong will be collecting donations toward hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and earthquake relief efforts in Mexico. We will be donating to Global Giving:
Our goal is $100 per classroom, and collections will run from October 11-13. Prizes will be awarded to those classrooms who lead the fundraising efforts. More information is to come.
If you would like donate items and help locally, some staff members are working with La Casa Puertoriquena. They are accepting donations of batteries, flashlights, lanterns, canned goods, water, toiletries, diapers, and medications. They have two locations: 5911 W. Montrose Ave and 3924 W. Devon suite 202.
Thank you for contributing, and showing our students the importance of helping those in need.
