In the wake of the devastation experienced in Puerto Rico by Hurricanes Irma & Maria, a student group from Whitby School known as Dumbledore’s Army planned and hosted a fundraiser to help hurricane relief in Puerto Rico. The event, entitled “Harry Potter’s Hurricane Healers”, co-sponsored by the Whitby Parents Association (Whitby PA), took place at Whitby’s Performing Art Center last month.
Price of admission for the Movie Night was at least one first-aid item: Gauze, Band-Aids, Alcohol Pads, or Hand Sanitizer. Students also sold Harry Potter-themed baked goods for $1 a piece. The event raised more than $400 for Teens 4PR, and the team collected 410 medical supply donations.
The funds and supplies were given to Teens 4PR, a non-profit platform to help young people fundraise for hurricane relief and reconstruction in Puerto Rico. Teens 4PR helps charitable organizations across the island including The Boys and Girls Club of Puerto Rico, Para la Naturaleza, Centros Sor Isolina Ferré.
