Today students from P138 in East Harlem visited LSA with donations of food for our pantry, collected through a food drive at the school. The special needs students and their families brought in canned and dry staples, collecting over 200 items in all. Rumor has it there was a friendly classroom competition to see which of the three participating classes could collect the most items. We hope they all had fun and thank the students and families for their generosity!
These donations are particularly timely, as we tend to see an increase in need for food pantry services during the holiday season.
During their visit, the students, ranging from grades 7-12, learned about our food pantry and the other programs we offer. They asked great questions, and even helped to stock the shelves.
Our thanks to the students, teachers and families of P138 for their fantastic donation!
