Students Support the Red Cross

March was American Red Cross Month. Pictured right, Basil Williams, the head of St. Mary School on St. Croix, thanked the students who supported the American Red Cross on “Wear Red Day” on March 23. Marjorie Emmanuel of the American Red Cross spoke briefly with the students about the Red Cross' worldwide assistance after natural and man-made disasters. Mr. Williams then presented her with a check for $170 from the students. Students paid $1 to wear red on this day.

St. Patrick School on St. Croix held a “penny war” to raise funds for the American Red Cross. Pictured left, Khaliah Stanley, seventh grade class president, presented a check for $300 to Ms. Emmanuel on March 26.
