San Diego Jewish Academy held a Typhoon Relief Craft Fair Nov. 24. One hundred percent of the vendor fees raised (the fee that crafters pay for participating) and 100 percent of the $5 admission fee will be donated to benefit the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. The crafters will also be donating a portion of their sales from the fair.
In addition, SDJA also sold food and refreshments, and 100 percent of those proceeds will also be donated.
SDJA has a long history of organizing large-scale service projects that benefit the victims of natural disasters. In 2005, the school raised more than 30 tons of supplies for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. In 2010, SDJA raised more than $100,000 worth of medical supplies for the victims of the Haiti earthquake, and in 2012, SDJA was able to raise more than $22,000, which was donated directly to aid groups “on the ground.”
