A School Needs Your Help

I know we are all aware of the devastation that Sandy has caused on the east coast of our country. Like I said in my last post, I'm from NJ and this truly has hit home for me.

There's a small town in Northern Jersey called Moonachie (Moon-ah-key). I remember driving through it when my father would pick me up on the weekends to take me to his home in Little Ferry.  Anyway, the only school the town had cannot be used any longer due to massive amounts of water damage.  I can't imagine what that must feel like for any teacher who spends their hard working money on supplies to teach his/her students.

So now I'm asking for your help...the students will be housed in portables for the time being and they have nothing!  I will do the best that I can at my school to collect as many materials as I can to ship out to them.  If any of you are interested please message me at campos.judy@gmail.com and I will be more than glad to give you the address to send materials to.

Here are a few links you may want to read/view to understand what's going on...
