We want to thank everyone who was able to bring in donations this week. Your generous contributions provided dozens of shoes, coats, warm clothing, toiletries, and so much more to new families here at PS20 and will also be included in the neighborhood distribution event taking place on Sunday at PS 46.
While we wait to hear what needs remain unmet after this distribution event, we will be PAUSING OUR COLLECTION next week. There will surely be more in the future, but we want to target our efforts to meet the most urgent needs at the moment. Stay tuned for information about future collections and even more ways to get involved in these types, and other community service opportunities!
In the meantime, you can consider helping in any of the following ways:
1. Bring clothing donations to collection bins outside Saint Mary’s Church on 230 Willoughby Avenue (or schedule a pickup!). They distribute goods to the community 6 days a week. https://www.stmarysclothingdrive.com/
2. Purchase items on schools’ Amazon wish lists that will be sent directly to students at PS46 and PS/IS 57: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1FE1RZTD47RC?ref_=wl_share
