Community Outreach Newsletter + CHiPS Food Drive Tomorrow!!
Tue, Nov 21 5:25pm

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

The 50+ bags like the ones below were decorated by the entire third grade. The project was suggested by one of their teachers, Shannon Brown. The bags will be used to send Thanksgiving meals to New Yorkers this holiday. Many thanks to the Third Grade!

As always we'll be collecting food for CHiPs tomorrow morning, the day before Thanksgiving! Please help stock them up through the long weekend. 

Coming up: 

1) Weekly CHiPs Food Drive (Wednesday)

2.) D15 Winter Coat Operation - There is a district wide effort to make sure every child in the district has a winter coat. PS107 will continue to partner with PS124, and we will share how to help after Thanksgiving. This effort is using the mutual aid model, if you'd like to see it in action, join the D15 Coat Operation WhatsApp: https://chat.whatsapp.com/FAJNOP1fPqW7AlQ4sg3mJi

As always...

Join the Community Outreach WhatsApp group to help our community respond to urgent asks:

We also highly recommend listening (over the course of subway rides and car trips) to this background on Mutual Aid, its history and principles, and the opportunity mutual aid presents to build new social relationships:
