Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth. This is a quote by Mohammed Ali that the students at Saint Philip’s Episcopal School took to heart as they began raising money to assist Project Medishare earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.
In two short weeks, St. Philip’s students, families, and staff have paid the rent.
“We have demonstrated the kind of compassion that proves we are the little neighborhood school with great big kindnesses,” Laura Yusko, St. Philips Fifth Grade Language Arts Teacher said.
From lemonade stands to bake sales, from a pajama contest to designing Lego jewelry, from car washes to dog walks, and chores done–St. Philip’s students raised $4000 to help bolster the Haitian relief efforts of Dr. Barth Green and Project Medishare.
Thank you Saint Philip’s Episcopal School for joining us in helping the Haitian people in this serious time of need!
Thank you for opening hearts and wallets, for supporting and conducting remarkable service to others.
