Catholic children donate to help children in hurricane-stricken region

.- Catholic students will have the opportunity to help children in the hurricane-stricken region through Child to Child: A Catholic Campaign to Aid Education. Organized by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA), the campaign will ask the 6.6 million students enrolled in its member schools, as well as religious education members, to donate $1 or as much as they can give.

The funds will be used to purchase school supplies or support other educational needs in Catholic schools and religious education parish programs. Some schools have already offered schooling for students displaced by the hurricane.

"We know that there are many programs underway to provide relief and rebuilding in this region," said NCEA president Dr. Karen Ristau. "Our goal is to give children the chance to help other children by providing resources like books, computers, paper or pencils."

NCEA will also act as a clearinghouse to share ideas and information about how dioceses, schools and individuals can help each other.
