The Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) family has a rich tradition of goodwill and humanitarianism that extends beyond our local community. Last week, Hurricane Matthew devastated the island nation of Haiti with unimaginable loss of life and displacement. Hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children need immediate assistance. In the wake of the impact of this powerful storm, M-DCPS has joined with Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Miami and Father Reginald Jean-Mary of Notre Dame d’Haiti Catholic Church to encourage our families, friends, neighbors, and colleagues to support hurricane relief efforts.

Haiti is once again facing a monumental crisis as a result of this hurricane. In 2008 and 2010, following catastrophic natural disasters that ravaged the island, M-DCPS partnered with Notre Dame d’Haiti Catholic Church to provide aid and supplies to its citizens. The District’s efforts, as well as other humanitarian efforts across the globe, are critical to help our brothers and sisters in Haiti stabilize their lives and rebuild in the aftermath of the storm’s devastation.
