Students in the Virtual Reality Academy at Felix Varela High School created artwork with messages of support for victims of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.

Miami-Dade County Public Schools, through the Foundation for New Education Initiatives, is collecting funds for relief, rebuilding, and recovery efforts in the Bahamas.

All donations will be sent to Operation Helping Hands activated by United Way of Miami-Dade, the Miami Herald/el Nuevo Herald and Univision 23 to help with relief, rebuilding and recovery efforts.

100% of all donations to Operation Helping Hands will go directly to supporting response efforts in the affected areas. Operation Helping Hands will work with local United Ways and nonprofit agencies in the affected areas to support both immediate and long-term recovery needs.

Thank you for your caring and generosity!
