Global Leadership Academy Needs Your Help

As many of you are probably aware, a fire devastated the Global Leadership Academy Charter School earlier this month. The school, located at 5151 Warren Street, has been closed since the five-alarm blaze tore through its building, destroying everything in its path. Nothing was able to be salvaged.

Now, the Global Leadership Academy and its approximately 400 students, from kindergarten through eighth grade, and 50 staff members continue to need your help.

It has given me much pride to represent a district where the community responded immediately to assist this school. Some of you donated money and supplies, other local schools donated computers, books and papers and nearby grocery stores donated lunches.

Your generosity has been overwhelming and yet, this school is still in dire need of help. For those of you who still wish to donate, I encourage you to donate supplies for offices, classrooms, students, and teachers or make a monetary donation. You can drop those supplies off at my district office or mail a check, made out to Global Leadership Academy Charter School, to my district office.

I know these are difficult, economic times for so many, and yet, you continue to find ways to give back.

During the month that we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his quote, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?’” resounds with me. Thank you for doing for others and giving back to those in need.

For questions regarding donating to the Global Leadership Academy Charter School, please call Senator Hughes’ District Office at 215-879-7777.
