The students of Malden’s Ferryway School were so moved by the plight of the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan hit, they needed to take action.
The fact that Gabby Matnog, a student at the school, has a dad who works at the Red Cross and was sent to the Philippines to help sealed the deal.
Gabby’s father Luis Matnog was deployed to the Philippines in November. A native Filipino, he has been in the U.S. and working for the Red Cross as an international responder for 10 years.
The Ferryway School raised $1,870 for the American Red Cross. Of that, $315.48 was raised just by Doreen Girard’s homeroom (pictured above).
There are so many ways you can multiply the gift from the Ferryway School – by donating time or treasure. Find out ways you can help here at RedCross.Org.
