Hooray! Thanks to P.S. 107’s generosity our 2018 Holiday Giving drives were a great success.
First, we met and exceeded our fundraising goal for the toy drive for P.S. 169, our sister school in Sunset Park. Each of P.S. 169's kindergarteners will receive a Melissa and Doug toy at their annual holiday event. That’s 240 toys! The extra funds we raised will goal to future activities that help build the bond between the two schools through community service.
And in our two-day coat drive, we collected 185 coats and a bunch of other winter gear. A special thanks to Kim Berney-Brooke and all the fifth graders who helped collect, sort and deliver the coats to Bloomberg Philanthropies and NY Cares. Bloomberg also does a coat match...so technically, P.S. 107 facilitated the delivery of 570 coats to New York City residents in need.
Happy Holidays everyone and thank you again for your interest and support.
