Region 5 Unites to Help Victims of Hurricane Dorian
All 32 schools in FCPS’s Region 5 of Fairfax County Public Schools are uniting together to support the humanitarian crisis that has occurred in the Bahamas due to Hurricane Dorian. Students in the Chantilly, Fairfax, Westfield, and Woodson High Pyramids want to help. There are an estimated 18,000 children in crisis in the Bahamas, and many children have lost everything they own. Over the next two weeks, the Region 5 schools will be fundraising via a GoFundMe page. The GoFundMe page also includes a link to a video for more information. All proceeds will go to the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) to cover water, shelter, food, clothes, backpacks, books, and other school materials. Please join Region 5 in making a difference. Any amount can be helpful. The fundraiser will run from Wednesday, September 18, to Friday, October 4.
