We would like to follow up on the message sent last week about support needed for the PS169 family impacted by the recent fire. Here are some more details on how you can help support the community and immediate needs:
1 - We will be collecting cash donations this week (Tuesday through Friday) at drop-off as well as at pick up from the After School program by the main entrance. These funds will be collected, locked in the school office daily, then hand-delivered to PS169 at the end of the week.
*If anyone is willing to volunteer time at drop-off this week to help with the donation collection, please let us know!
2 - Donations are being accepted by the PS 516 GoFundMe (the youngest child is in PreK there): https://www.gofundme.
3 - Joanna Lumbang Dowding, a member of the Community Outreach Committee, graciously set up a Venmo option for donations where they will be converted to cash at the end of the week and hand delivered to PS169. The QR code is attached (@joanna-dowding - for verification, the last 4 numbers of the phone are 5118).
Thank you for your support and willingness to help the community, especially in a time of such great need.
