Relief Efforts Continue

After early dismissal for Election Day today, the Saint David's community came together to prepare personalized bags of first aid supplies and toiletries for The Church of St. Clare's school and parish on Staten Island.  We learned of the immediate need for these supplies in our open relief effort community meeting yesterday morning.

By yesterday afternoon, Saint David's was fully mobilized--putting out the call for materials and supplies, and this afternoon these supplies have all been sorted, prepared, boxed and just now delivered.  Above is a quick shot of volunteer parents, teachers and boys working together to accomplish the goal after dismissal.

Some 30 large boxes containing hundreds of individualized kits are now on their way to residents of Staten Island's Great Kills area through the efforts of Saint David's families and the dedicated work of the Church of St. Clare.

Visit Saint David's Relief Efforts Clearinghouse for more opportunities to help.
