Xaverian Students Coordinate Hurricane Relief
Relief efforts have been underway at Xaverian High School in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn to aid those in distress after Hurricane Sandy. A uniform and everyday goods drive was organized immediately after the storm in order to help students return to their everyday school routines as quickly as possible. Additionally, faculty members have been aiding in the cleanup process in the areas hardest hit by the storm each weekend. Middle school students organized a wonderful drive to create customized care packages containing gift cards and everyday items that families lost during the storm.
Relief efforts continue as the Christmas season is upon us. The Interact Club, a student service club at Xaverian sponsored by the Rotary Club of Verrazano, has organized a bake sale and raffle in order to raise money for the Graybeards in Rockaway. Students have also coordinated a Toys for Tots donation drive. -
