What a wonderful day of “giving back”! Students at all levels and in both buildings engaged in various activities, parents actively participated, and staff kept everything moving! We collected over 1200 canned and boxed foods that went food pantries/shelters in Newark, Irvington, Hillside, and East Orange. The team donating the most food was Team Bridges, with 408 cans and boxes. Team Chisholm came in second, with 224 and Team King, with 211.
Students prepared 215 sandwich bags (sandwiches, chips, water, and fruit) for the Apostles House and YMCA Emergency Housing in Newark. They also wrote “caring cards” to be sent to an organization that will see that children in foster care receive them. We are proud of our Link community – students, staff, and parents – for being actively engaged in the day’s activities and for giving back to the community, helping those in need.
