Join our efforts to raise funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Hello College of Staten Island High School students, parents, and teachers,

With the greatest of appreciation, I'd like to thank you all for participating in the fundraising initiative on December 20th, Rally. We sent out over 3000 letters to friends and family asking them to donate to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

As you may know, money raised goes directly to the Hospital to keep research labs operating and to treat children from all over the world. This treatment is provided without regard for their families’ ability to pay. Because of your help, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will receive much needed funds to ensure that one day there will be a cure for cancer, AIDS and other terrible diseases that threaten the lives of children.
We look forward to growing the partnership between our organization and your High School!
Happy Holidays and have a Healthy New Year!

"The question is not whether we can afford to invest in every child; it is whether we can afford not to"-Mirian Wright Edelman

St Jude Children's Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Founded by late entertainer Danny Thomas and based in Memphis, Tennessee, St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities around the world. No family ever pays for treatments not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay. St Jude is financially supported by ALSAC, its fund-raising organization.
