Lido Supports Puerto Rico with Hurricane Relief Donations

Lido School presented a $1,500 check donation to the Surf for All not-for-profit organization in order to provide assistance to those in Puerto Rico who were affected by Hurricane Maria. Fifth-grade Student Government members felt a strong sense of compassion for those afar who are facing devastation from the disaster and wanted to do something to help.  

On Nov. 17, Woody Skudin of Surf for All visited Lido and graciously accepted the contribution. The students also prepared gift bags filled with school supplies generously donated by the Long Beach Walgreens. Surf for All will take the funds and items to Rincon, Puerto Rico, where they will be distributed to support those in need. 

Lido has made other efforts to help those impacted by this season’s storms. During the first week of school, students, families and staff members collected backpacks, school supplies, socks and other items for the Hurricane Harvey victims in Houston. The school, district and community that experienced Superstorm Sandy in 2012 have been eager to lend a hand and help other areas rebuild.
