The PS/IS 217 Parent Teacher Association, in coordination with the Roosevelt Island Disabled Association, will distribute 40 holiday boxes filled with shelf-stable food on Wednesday, December 22 from 6-7 pm in front of the schoolyard gate at 645 Main St.
The boxes were decorated by the Kindergarten class and donations were provided by the school community during their food drive last December 6-10. Boxes are limited so if you are in need please come on time.
“The Roosevelt Island community is so special, and the support received is invaluable,” said RIDA president Wendy Hersh.
“The PS/IS 217 PTA and RIDA are thrilled to be able to give back to our community in this way, and we are repeatedly amazed by the compassion and generosity of the students, families, teachers, staff and volunteers.
“A huge thank you to RIDA, Wendy Hersh, the Wellness Committee, and our PTA committee” said Eirik Gislason, co-President of the 217 PTA Executive Board.”
