Dear Members of the Xavier Community,
Last week, our country, particularly the northern regions of Luzon, was yet again victimized by a natural calamity, Super Typhoon Lawin. The relentless rains and strong winds have proven to be catastrophic, resulting in damage and unfavorable circumstances in these areas. According to recent reports, estimated damage to infrastructure and agriculture in four Northern Luzon regions has reached two billion pesos. So far, around 50,000 families have been displaced by the super typhoon.
It is in this light that Xavier School, in close coordination with the High School Student Council, is now organizing another “Call of Duty”, a relief effort to collect monetary donations for all those affected by the effects of Super Typhoon Lawin in Northern Luzon. We would like to seek your help in supporting the said project.
In order to address the urgent needs of the victims, we will be accepting financial contributions (cash and checks), in the meantime. This will eventually expand to goods and other items once we have identified what the affected families need. Kindly place your cash or check donations in an envelope and indicate both donor (name and section of student) and amount details and forward to the Accounting Office. Checks must be made payable to Xavier School, Inc.
The school will accept your donations starting today, October 24, Monday until October 28, Friday.
In addition, the High School Student Council is preparing follow-up projects, such as a block screening of J.K. Rowling’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” in November, to sustain our efforts in helping our fellow Filipino brothers and sisters recover from the aftermath of the typhoon.
We hope for your most generous support in this endeavor.
Luceat Lux! Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam!
