In the past few weeks, our nation has experienced several hurricanes. Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas Gulf Coast, and Hurricane Irma hit the Caribbean and East Coast of the United States. Homes, schools and businesses were destroyed, lives were lost by the devastation of the hurricane, and families displaced. In the midst of it all, the people of our country have come together to provide aid to the people affected by the hurricanes.
As a school system, we would like to show our support for the victims of the two hurricanes. For the next three Fridays, September 15, 22 and 29, 2017, we would like for our entire school system to participate in the Baldwin Cares fundraiser. Students and employees can show their support by wearing Jeans or a team jersey. Students will be asked to donate a $1.00 and faculty/staff $3.00. All proceeds will be donated to the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. If your school is already doing jeans day for the United Way Campaign, consider making an additional donation to support this effort.
