Donation protected
Two months ago Hurricane María impacted Puerto Rico and schools suffered great damage. I'm asking your support for the Dr. Antonio S. Pedreira elementary school in Puerto Nuevo, San Juan. When the storm ripped off the ceiling of its library, all the books and school materials store at the library were gone. This school has inspired many teachers and is a leader in educational innovations. The school already started classes and the teachers need these materials with urgency. Teacher Norys González has been coordinating the selection of the books they need for their specific school curriculum and the selection of the materials listed below. Please, join me on supporting the teachers so that the children keep receiving the quality education they deserve.
