DECEMBER 2018 SCHOOL UPDATES
G.O. Charity Support
Dear PS 184 Families,
PS 184 has a long tradition of service to the community and supports many charitable organizations.
As we begin the holiday season, the Student Government GO needs your support to gather donations for a few local charities.
Local food banks and pantries are in desperate need of non-perishable food items as they struggle to meet the demands of families who are still experiencing hardship. Please send in canned vegetables, tuna & meats; pasta & rice; coffee, tea & cocoa; baby food & formula; soup and cereal. There will be boxes in the auditorium lobby. PLEASE DO NOT SEND IN GLASS.
ST. MARY’S CHILDRENS HOSPITAL/TOYS FOR TOTS:
These long time organizations have sponsored holiday toy drives and they collect and distribute new & unwrapped toys to underprivileged and hospitalized children throughout thecommunity. Toys can be sent in at any time but the GO has a special raffle the day of the Winter Fair (December 7). For every new & unwrapped gift that is donated to the toy drive, you will receive a raffle ticket to win one of two $25.00 gift cards.
ST. ALBAN’S VETERANS HOSPITAL:
Each year, we remember local veterans who served our country and who are residents of the Veterans Hospital in St. Alban’s. We collect toiletries; puzzle books & playing cards; pajamas, robes & underwear; sugar-free candy and socks. We also encourage the students to write a note or make a holiday card for the veterans who often have no one to share the season with. Items for the veterans may be left in the Main Office.
NEW YORK CARES COAT DRIVE:
This organization gathers clean, gently worn coats & jackets to distribute to those in need. If you are cleaning out closets and can donate, please send to the Main Office.
This is a wonderful time of the year for families to get together and make memories. It also gives us an opportunity to appreciate our good fortune and share it with those who haven’t been quite as lucky.
The G.O. thanks you for your help in supporting these “good deeds”.
