Catholic School Students Nationwide Help Catholic School Students Affected By Hurricane Harvey

"Student to Student: A Catholic School Response to Hurricane Harvey"

Arlington, VA — The National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) has started a campaign in solidarity with our Catholic school families throughout the country as we seek to help Catholic schools in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. NCEA invites every Catholic school family to contribute at least $1 per student to this national campaign.

These funds will be used to help Catholic schools impacted by the storm rebuild, reopen and re-enroll students. The number of affected Catholic schools is still being determined, but more than 150 Catholic schools are in the storm's path.

NCEA President/CEO Thomas Burnford said, “Our hearts and prayers are with our Catholic school communities and all those affected by Hurricane Harvey. In keeping with our mission to serve others, we hope this campaign will help Catholic schools facing recovery and rebuilding.”

There are more than 6,420 Catholic schools in the United States with nearly 1.9 million students.
