I received this message this morning from Joellen Killion at the
Staff Development Council. Please share with your colleagues and do
There is a way we can constructively contribute to children and their
teachers who have been displaced by the tragedy in New York. Our
Riva Korashan, at the United Federation of Teachers, Teacher Center in
York, has requested that we help supply three schools, two elementary
schools and one K-8 school, involving 1000 students with the basics they
need for everyday classroom activities. The schools have been closed and
relocated. Teachers and children left everything behind when they
to safety on Tuesday.
These educators and students need everything, book bags, pencils, paper,
classroom books, paper, teacher supplies, classroom supplies, etc.
donations are welcome also.
Please send your donations to:
UFT Teacher Center/School Relief

New York, NY 10010
Maybe in this small way, we can feel as if our horror, anger, and grief
a positive outlet. I deeply appreciate your willingness to consider this
request and ask that you will pass it along to those you know who might
able to help.
