If your school suffered damage during Hurricane Sandy, edWeb has informed me of an opportunity for schools to receive a grants towards rebuilding efforts.
In April, Princeton University students are hosting a fundraiser and they would like to donate the funds to New Jersey schools that suffered damage in the hurricane. The effort is being coordinated by the Pace Council for Civic Values. The students are raising money to offer grants from $500, to a select group of schools. The total amount of money to be awarded is estimated to be about $5,000.
Since edWeb is located in Princeton, NJ, they volunteered to help the students find schools who need help rebuilding. One of our edWeb team members lost a home at the shore during the storm.
If your school, or a school you know, suffered damage, you can apply for a Hurricane Sandy Relief Award by completing this application. Applications should be submitted by April 12th. Submissions will be reviewed by a student committee to make the final grant awards.
If you are selected to receive an award you will be notified by May 10th.
Hopefully, this fundraising effort can help you in your efforts to restore the shore.
