Disaster RELIEF FUND
October 15, 2018
Dear Kolbe Families and Friends,
Our hearts and our prayers continue to go out to all the victims of Hurricane Michael[MR1] . In 2017, the Kolbe Academy Family put together a very sizeable relief fund, with the goal to help those affected by natural disasters. These funds are available to families in a FEMA declared disaster area. If you or anyone you know has been affected, please be sure to reach out and notify us.
Kolbe Academy is prepared to offer assistance to Kolbe Families who are enrolled with us and are in one of the FEMA-declared disaster areas listed below. Families that meet those criteria will receive priority, however any family affected will receive consideration.
Florida-Related Disaster Areas:
Counties of: Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty, Taylor, Wakulla, Washington
Georgia-Related Disaster Areas:
Counties of: Baker, Decatur, Dougherty, Early, Miller, Seminole
Alabama -Related Disaster Areas:
Counties of: Dale, Geneva, Henry and Houston
If you would like to help those Kolbe families who have been affected by the flooding, we welcome your assistance. We have established a fund to help these Kolbe families replace their books, assist with tuition payments, etc. Be assured that 100% of your donation will be used to help those families. Since Kolbe Academy is a 501(c)(3) organization, all of your donations are tax-deductible.
We are continuing the search for used books for these families as well, so if you have books that you would like to donate or sell back to Kolbe, we will use these books to help our parents replace what has been lost. Be sure that you indicate that you would like them to be used towards the Hurricane Relief efforts and send them in to the below listed address. If we cannot use them for one of our families, then the value of the book will be donated to the Kolbe Academy Relief Fund in your name. Please check to make sure that the books are in alignment with the Kolbe Academy Curriculum, as we may not be able to accept them otherwise.
If you are able to help, please click here to be taken to a secure online donation form. In the field titled "How would you like your donation directed?" please select Hurricane Michael Relief. If you would prefer to donate by check, please mail your check to Kolbe Academy at 1600 F Street, Napa, CA 94559, with "Michael" on the memo line.
Thank you and God bless you!
