Robinson School and its community outreach program will dedicate the next 2 weeks to collaborating with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), an organization that offers services to the community of more than 3,200 people with muscular dystrophy in Puerto Rico. Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a complex group of neuromuscular genetic disorders with at least 43 different associated types, and each patient has specific needs.
We invite you to join our upcoming MDA fundraising campaign. Our goal is to help the MDA buy the equipment needed to improve patients’ quality of life. For those living with muscular dystrophy, your small change—dollars, quarters, dimes and nickels—can mean big change!
The campaign consists of giving each of our families a piggy bank. Students will ask their family members, friends and neighbors for donations. Then, they will return the piggy banks to their homerooms where MDA representatives will collect them.
Wednesday, October 5 – “Walk in Their Socks”
Optional: Students and staff can wear unique socks to school for a $1.00 donation. Photos will be taken by grade and published on Robinson School and MDA websites.
On this day we have invited special guests with MD to join us in our Chapel service.
Wednesday, October 12 – Last day to return piggy banks
We are counting on your support to make this campaign a success so that our friends with muscular dystrophy in Puerto Rico continue receiving the medical services and equipment necessary to live their lives to the fullest.
May God continue to bless you,
