One Brick at a Time

An ongoing fundraiser at Reinhard is the mortar needed to rebuild Caribbean schools that have been damaged by devastating storms this past hurricane season. The school’s student advisory council is hosting a fundraiser called One Brick at a Time, sponsored by All Hands Volunteers, a U.S.-based nonprofit dedicated to empowering disaster relief volunteers throughout the world. 

Students were encouraged to color in a paper brick sent home by the school and to return it with a donation of $1 or more. As the bricks are collected, they are placed on the hallway wall like bricks on a building for all to see. Norwegian Cruise Line, a company on a mission to rebuild schools, is matching each donation.

Principal Patricia Castine said, “Our students can feel proud that they are making a difference by helping other children get back to school.”
