Desert Academy’s Relief Efforts for Haiti: Coming together as a community to help.
Relief efforts for Haiti and Haitian refugees in the Dominican Republic are already underway at Desert Academy. As a school committed to local, national and international community awareness, education and support via programs like Sharing Our Humanity, Desert Academy students, faculty and staff have come together through our clubs and organizations to raise funds for survivors of the Haitian earthquake. But we need help.
