PLEASE HELP

We are very fortunate to have some outstanding young people living and studying in our community. Chris DeLucci and fellow 7th grader’s at Sacred Heart School met with the Greenburgh Town Board this week

Project to Help Hurricane Dorian Victims in the Bahamas

The project was initiated by Chris DeLucci, a 7th Grader at Sacred Heart School in Hartsdale, in the aftermath of the devastation in the Bahamas. Watching news reports of the hurricane damage and after talking with his family about the need to help the people there, Chris began to organize a response. He reached out to several classmates and invited them to help. This group of students, along with their parents, have been working to organize the project.

The students involved are:

Chris DeLucci

Vincent Spillane

Drew Cook

Lucas Bragaglia

Joe Brown

Joe O’Sullivan

A call was made to the Consulate of the Bahamas in NYC, where a staff member gave a list of needed items, and plans were made to deliver donations to the consulate next week for shipment.

The Consulate told the boys of items needed, including:

Blankets, First Aid items, hygiene products, OTC medications, non-perishable foods, diapers, wipes, flashlights/batteries.

Their plan is:

Since all the boys are students at Sacred Heart School in Hartsdale, they reached out to their Principal for support and asked if a collection could take place in school. They are collecting items throughout the week in the school lobby, as well as at the school’s Welcome Back Barbecue on Friday, September 13.

The boys will be outside Acme/CVS on Knollwood Road on Saturday morning, September 14 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. to receive donations from the community.

These stores have been contacted and informed.

The Poet’s Corner Association was contacted and will share information with the community through their email list.

The boys and parents also spoke with friends, their baseball teams, women’s hockey team, Scouts and parishioners about the collection.

A hockey teammate has generously offered 2,500 diapers from a community service organization she is associated with.

A drop off box will be available at Town Hall this week.


Donated items will be delivered to the Consulate of the Bahamas next week.

Various organizations and charities will be collecting supplies to help the victims as well. People interested in helping can also contact the Consulate of the Bahamas for information as well.
