The thoughts and prayers of the Loyola community are with everyone who has been impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
The Loyola Responds committee has been in touch with our Jesuit colleagues in the New York Province, and they are working hard to assist students, families, faculties, and staff at two local schools affected by the storm: St. Peter’s Prep in New Jersey and Xavier High School in New York. About 100 students and their families need temporary housing, nearly half of whom lost their homes completely or will end up needing long-term housing assistance, and classes at both schools were suspended temporarily.
In response, the New York Province is accepting monetary donations to help these students, families, and employees of these Jesuit schools get back on their feet.
You can make a donation to the New York Province for this important relief effort. Funds raised by Loyola community members will be divided equally between both schools to support families and students by providing housing and tuition assistance as well as meeting other immediate needs. Or you may send a check made payable to the New York Province of the Society of Jesus (including “Hurricane Sandy Relief” in the check’s memo line or attached note) to:
NYSJ Advancement Office
39 E. 83rd Street
New York, NY 10028
You may also help those affected by Hurricane Sandy by making a donation to the Red Cross.
