support Sandy affected schools through Wiley

Wiley Family
As you know, Hurricane Sandy affected many families, and schools were left in ruins. Donors Choose is working with teachers to help them restock much needed supplies to get students back on track, even if classes meet elsewhere because the school building was devastated. After Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes Giving Tuesday. It is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. Giving Tuesday celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations. Learn more here http://givingtuesday.org/about/. The CEO of Donors Choose is one of the key team members so it seems a perfect fit.

While we nourish and feed our own Wiley community through the Food Friends food drive, we can reach out to other students who need help as well. We're partnering with Donors Choose to help children just like our own who are eager to learn and refreshingly curious. And the best part is today's Groupon for Donors Choose! Your $10 donation will buy $20 worth of supplies!

Here are the projects that we hope to support through kind, generous donations from our Wiley community:
