Hurricane Relief: Truitt Elementary

$3,100 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 24 people in 8 months
Thelca B. is an EdD student and Principal of an elementary school in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. In September 2017, St. Thomas suffered tremendous damage during Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Ms. B. has been sending reports to the EdD Program Director (Dr.  Geller) and her Dissertation Chair (Dr. Lee).  We asked Thelca B.  what is needed for her family and her school. She has provided us with a list that includes electric generator, solar lights, batteries, garbage bags, baggies, paper goods, school supplies and canned foods.  

Funds will continue to be collected through 12/31/2017. Funds that have been collected have been  used to purchase and ship the requested goods.  

Ms. B.  has shared the goods with the faculty and staff at the Truitt Elementary School and she, the faculty and the staff are so appreciative of the support they have received  from the Drexel community (this thank you picture is shared here with all who have given and taken the time to be aware of their recovery!)

Further funds collected will be used by Ms. B. for her school, faculty and staff, the children, their families and the greater good of the St. Thomas community!

To access the funds you are so graciously giving,, I am asked to answer these three questions:
1) How are you related to your beneficiary?
Thelca B is a doctoral student in the School of Education program where I am the EdD Program Director and a faculty member.
2) How will the funds be distributed?
I am purchasing goods and paying for shipping based on requests received from Thelca B. I will be withdrawing the funds in my name to reimburse based on specific receipts provided.
(3) How exactly you will be delivering the funds to your beneficiary?
We are purchasing a list of supplies provided by Thelca B. and shipping them to her in St. Thomas. Funds not expensed in this manner, will be provided to Thelca B on an Amazon Gift card to be used for her school and the needs of the greater St. Thomas community.
