Thank you to all the parents / guardians who participated in our Puerto Rico drive last month!
In total, we collected around a dozen large boxes: including over 200 T-shirts, baby formula, diapers, baby wipes, formula, feminine hygiene products, ibuprofen, deodorant soap, shampoo, clothing, underwear and socks, beans, pasta, soups, cereals, cat food, Neosporin, Band Aids, first aid kits, toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, mouthwash, batteries and water, canned goods, cereal, tissues and baby bottles.
A special thank you to Officers Roman and Hopkins of the 78th Precinct’s Domestic Violence Unit, who came to the school to collect all of the boxes of supplies.
If anyone would like to continue to donate, the 78th Precinct will be continuing to collect and ship supplies in the coming weeks at 65 6th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 11217-2110 (718) 636-6411. Of particular need are diapers, feminine hygiene products and batteries.
Our academy will be holding a collection drive for supplies to send to Puerto Rico, after Hurricane Maria left many on the island in need of basic household goods.
The drive will last through next Monday and will be shipped to Puerto Rico by law enforcement volunteers at the 78th Precinct, who have been collecting supplies from the neighborhood.
There will be a box in the school’s entryway to collect items such as those listed below through Monday. Thanks to everyone in the Saint Saviour community for your continued generosity.
- Baby Food
- Feminine Products
- Rubbing Alcohol
- First Aid Supplies
Dog or Cat Food

They will also contribute a personal donation of 50% of our total amount raised if there are more than 35 participants that mention our school and it will double to the full amount of funds raised if we reach over 70 participants.
