Area Teachers Raising Funds For Storm Relief
A group of Oahu teachers, including several from Ewa Elementary School, has launched a fundraiser for storm relief by selling “Sea2Sea” bracelets, and readers can buy them for $5 each at the next Mililani High School ABC Craft Fair, set for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 8 in the school gym and parking lot.
“Some of us are from the East Coast and were directly affected by Hurricane Sandy,” said Megan Dolan, a fundraising organizer who teaches at MHS. “Our bracelets represent us spreading the aloha spirit and helping out from one coast to another. All proceeds go directly to Waves for Water.”
A native of Rockaway, NY, Dolan’s family home sustained major flood damage from the Oct. 29-30 superstorm. Others in the group are from affected homes in New Jersey, but are living here and teaching in Ewa and Mililani schools.
Though founded on clean water initiatives, the nonprofit Waves for Water (W4W) currently works on survival needs of storm victims, serving “as a bridge connecting the global surf community directly to our brothers and sisters in need along the East Coast.”
