The photos and reports of the hurricane damage in Puerto Rico, Florida and Texas, as well as the fires in California, pulled at the heartstrings of the Searingtown School community. Concerned staff members came together to devise a plan to respond and help fellow Americans.

“Chores for Change” was born out of this concern. Students talked with their parents about the great need due to these natural disasters. The idea was simple: Could they do chores around the house for change to donate to the Hurricane/Fire Relief Fund at Searingtown? From Oct. 23 to Nov. 9, the students went into action and donations piled up. The final count came to rest at $3,000.14. All of the proceeds were sent to the American Red Cross.

Credit goes to all parts of the school community as teachers, parents and students pulled together to talk about their ties to these events and desire to be part of the solution.
