Earth Day Toy Drive – Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our second used toy/book/games drive during Earth Week. Our donations will be given out to hundreds of ​children on July 4th when Project You holds their annual holiday picnic.

Special thanks to Marcia Osgood for all her hard work organizing the collection and pick-up; Chris Minaya and Maryana for the invaluable administrative support; Hemalee and Sara, Co-Chairs of the Give Back Committee; and Adam Holland and the four 6th grade boys – Lewis, Joshua, Dylan, and Andrew, who cleaned, sorted and packed 40 bags/boxes of toys, and loaded it all into the donation truck. Second-grader Saam helped load the truck, too. It was an amazing effort and they deserve our thanks!

Join the Give Back Committee.
