Two of our Fifth Grade students, Amina Rosa Castronovo and Mary B Midyette (pictured), were at the bottom of the steps this morning announcing a school supplies drive to benefit homeless children aided by the Brooklyn Family Justice Center. The drive is being organized by Girl Scout Troop #3005 and this week at drop-off (between 8:15-8:45 AM) the girls will be collecting the following new and unused school supplies:
- #2 pencils
- pencil sharpeners
- pencil cases
- composition books
The troop will place the supplies, along with toiletries and a stuffed animal, in backpacks they are assembling to give to children who are going from unsafe home situations into shelters. Please pick up some supplies this week on your way to or from school (King’s Pharmacy has everything they need…) and support their efforts!
