Dear Hoban Family,
We call Hoban a family because we are stronger together. Not since 1975, when the community rallied to keep the school open, have we had the need to demonstrate our collective strength. COVID-19 has saddled many families with significant financial challenges, forcing them to request immediate financial assistance. We at Hoban are doing what we can to help ease the burden on families while continuing to provide a superior education in the Holy Cross tradition. But we need your help in aiding those faced with having to choose between basic needs and a Hoban education.
Brian and Kathy Miller, parents of Scott Miller ’14, have spearheaded the newly established "Stronger Together Emergency Relief Fund" and offered to match all donations up to $25,000. Following their lead, Dave ’64 and Martha Showers, Jim ’77 and Diana McCool and several others have agreed to match every single dollar raised, up to $150,000.*
I recognize that many of you are facing similar challenges. If you do have the means to give, know that your gift will have a profound impact on the lives of our students. Moments like this remind us how much we all need one another. Let's unite the Hoban community and show what a difference a family can make. We are stronger together! Thank you for showing your love and support.
Let us hold fast to Christ's cross, our only hope!
Dr. Tom Curry
