Throughout the 2018-19 school year, Grand Avenue Middle School students worked hard to raise money for the district’s Community Cupboard. Through two separate projects, the students raised $2,575.
Through the first initiative, student volunteers sold pretzels from Philly Pretzel Factory after school. This effort helped to generate a net donation of $2,250 for the Cupboard.
The second endeavor involved student athletes taking part in community service by collecting plastic recyclable bottles from around the school. Thanks to the relationship and help of the Bellmore Beverage Center, the initiative raised $325. Grand Avenue thanks Joe Sciara and Steve Johnson from the center in their assistance with separating and counting the bottles.
Housed at Brookside School’s administrative building, the cupboard is a fully stocked food pantry for local families in need. The district congratulates and thanks all of the involved students for their outstanding effort in helping to provide for the Community Cupboard.
