Hi everyone, we wanted to share some very good news with you. The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) reached out to us today to let us know that the PS 20 PTA has the most COVID-19 Vaccine referrals of any PTA in NYC!
With 70 referrals, we have raised $7,000 to help support PS 20! That's more funding to help increase the number of PTA School Assistants, more Green Arts and STEAM programming and support for outdoor eating and learning. Through this program we can get up to another $13,000 through this program ($100 per referral for another 130 people).
So, when you go to take your child to get a COVID-19 vaccine at a NYC sponsored site this weekend or anytime in the future, please make sure that you list the "PS20 Parent and Teachers' Association, Inc." [NO SPACE between PS and 20 otherwise it won't show up] as the referral organization on your intake form.
If you don't have a vaccination appointment yet, you can go to the NYC's COVID-19 Citywide Information Portal (link here). You can use the Vaccine Finder to make an appointment, but please note, you will only be able to get the $100 family incentive and the $100 referral incentive for PS 20 at a NYC sponsored site - like the NYC Vaccine Hub at City Point (445 Albee Square West) - which accepts walk ins 7 days a week from 10am-7pm. You can also click on find a list of all of the NYC sponsored walk up sites here.
Thanks to you all as we work to make the PS 20 community a healthier and safer place for our children.
Wishing everyone a great weekend.
-The PS 20 PTA Board
