We've sadly learned that a PS169 family was affected by a devastating fire two nights ago in Sunset Park. They've lost their entire home and belongings, and the youngest of 6 children has been hospitalized. Here's the local news story: https://abc7ny.com/
The family is most in need of financial support right now, and so we're asking for your immediate help collecting funds.
We are working on 3 ways that the community can help:
1- Cash Donations. We'll be out front at drop off each morning over the coming week, and will also have a donation jar at the Afterschool Pick-Up table as well as at Movie Night. Any amount is extremely helpful and welcome - more information to follow about when and where you can donate. We'd love a few volunteers to help in the mornings too and will send around a sign up.
2 - A GoFundMe has been organized by PS 516 in Sunset Park. The youngest child is in PreK there. Donations can be provided through their GoFundMe account: https://www.gofundme.
