Mary Ward Typhoon Haiyan Relief Project

Mary Ward students were quick to help following the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan which hit the Philippines in November, 2013.  Under the supervision of Ms. Eileen Rayman, a group of dedicated, enthusiastic high-schoolers rallied school-wide support to collect clothing, non-perishable food items, medical supplies, blankets, and toiletries to be sent to those in need. The response was phenomenal and 32 boxes were packed up; special thanks to Mr. Benny Cuevillas from the Kalayaan Cultural Centre who facilitated the pick-up and shipping.  In addition to this, Mary Ward took part in the “Toonie Tuesday” board-wide fundraiser on Tuesday, November 19; students were encouraged to bring in $2 to wear civvies, with all proceeds donated to the Philippines.
