The San Pedro Roman Catholic School is reaching out to the community of San Pedro for assistance in form of donations to be able to fix their library that is in dire need of repairs. For some time now the current building has been deteriorating slowly and after the September Mexico earthquake the building shook and needs to be reinforced. The building has broken doors and windows and the exterior walls are all rotting and falling apart.
Heading this fundraising initiative is Catherine Whitney also known by the students as “Teacher Kate”. She has been volunteering at the library for several years now. The children have grown to love and appreciate everything Teacher Kate does and love spending time with her at the library reading stories and doing other fun activities.
Donation boxes in the shape of books have been placed several resorts across the island as well as the banks in town. "San Pedro is very small but it has a big heart," commented Teacher Kate. “I am sure the community will pull through and help us reach our goals raising enough money for our new library”. She is very grateful to everybody for all the assistance the school has received.
The school is in full support of Teacher Kate’s initiative and will be planning on doing other fundraising events such as a dollar drive and Christmas Bazaar. Special thanks are in hand for Mr. Enrique Staines from Super Buy for the donation of boxes. For donations kindly visit the school office or call 226-2550 or email Teacher Kate at [email protected]
