$5.00 feeds a child for 5 days

Costs less than 2 latte's

It only takes $5.00 to feed a child a nutritious lunch at school for a week, which for many is their only meal.

The Marist Missionary Sisters run two schools in Kingston, Jamaica. A U.S. Marist Brother works on the staff of an orphanage run by the Marist Sisters, and one of our Marist Young Adults from New York City spent her past summer volunteering at the schools run by the Sisters.


Be aware that SJA alumni, parents, students, and faculty are part of a larger, world-wide international Marist Community!


We may not be able to travel to Jamaica to provide direct assistance but we can help through prayer, fund raising and advocating for human dignity.


If you are able to help feed an orphan for a week, please send your donation to St. Joseph Academy with a notation "orphanage".
