Scarsdale High School is partnering with the Afya Foundation to provide medical supplies, clothing, water, and financial donations to address the humanitarian crisis in Haiti. The Afya Foundation is headed by Scarsdale Distinguished Alumna Danielle Butin (Class of '81) and for many years has provided on-the-ground assistance to people in the third world. The Foundation also enjoys a strong working relationship with Partners in Health.
In addition to providing critical supplies, the organization, headquartered in Yonkers, New York, offers opportunities for students to volunteer to prepare supplies for shipment to Haiti. Donations of medical supplies and clothing can be brought to Scarsdale High School in the Principal's Office. Financial donations can also be mailed or brought to the Principal's Office. Please make checks payable to the Afya Foundation. All donations are fully tax-deductible.
