Help your neighbors: Donate to the school-wide food drive

Group of students with nonperishable food items
Scotchtown Avenue Elementary School students are hosting a school-wide food drive under the supervision of School Social Worker Mary Kay Jankowski.

Scotchtown Avenue Elementary School has participated in a school wide Food Drive for many years. Our goal is to include our students in an activity that may help others at a time when many food pantries are depleted after the holiday season. This is a simple way to have young children learn about acts of kindness and giving to others. Participation is voluntary.

If you wish to have your child participate in this project, please have them bring nonperishable food items to the school during the month of January.

SUGGESTED FOOD ITEMS: snacks for school such as applesauce, granola bars, or raisins, peanut butter, hot and cold cereal, rice, macaroni and cheese, canned meats and fish, jelly, baby food, coffee, sugar, and canned goods. PLEASE DO NOT SEND ITEMS WITH AN EXPIRED FRESHNESS DATE.

No glass containers, please.

After January 31, the collected food will be delivered to the Youth Ending Hunger Club Food Pantry at the Goshen Intermediate School.

Anyone living in the Goshen Central School District who is need of food can contact the Main Office of the Intermediate School for more information at 845-616-6500.

In addition, the Ecumenical Food Pantry located at the First Presbyterian Church of Goshen is open to GCSD residents on the second Saturday of each month at 9:30 a.m. and the last Thursday of the month at 6 p.m.

If you have any questions about this project, please contact the school at 845-615-6635.

Very truly yours,

Principal Henry Freedman and Social Worker Mary Kay Jankowski

La escuela primaria Scotchtown Avenue ha participado en una campaña de alimentos en toda la escuela durante muchos años. Nuestro objetivo es incluir a nuestros estudiantes en una actividad que pueda ayudar a otros en un momento en que muchas despensas de alimentos se agotan después de la temporada navideña. Esta es una manera simple de hacer que los niños pequeños aprendan sobre los actos de bondad y de dar a los demás. La participación es voluntaria.

Si desea que su hijo participe en este proyecto, pídales que traigan alimentos no perecederos a la escuela durante el mes de enero.

ARTÍCULOS DE ALIMENTACIÓN SUGERIDOS: refrigerios para la escuela, como puré de manzana, barras de granola o pasas, mantequilla de maní, cereal frío y caliente, arroz, macarrones con queso, carnes y pescados enlatados, gelatina, alimentos para bebés, café, azúcar y productos enlatados.

NO ENVÍE ARTÍCULOS CON UNA FECHA DE FRESCURA VENCIDA.

No envases de vidrio por favor.

Después del 31 de enero, la comida recolectada será entregada al Youth Ending Hunger Club Despensa de alimentos en la Escuela Intermedia Goshen.

Cualquier persona que viva en el Distrito Escolar Central de Goshen (GCSD) que necesite alimentos puede comunicarse con la Oficina Principal de la Escuela Intermedia para obtener más información. (845-616-6500)

Además, la despensa ecuménica de alimentos ubicada en la Primera Iglesia Presbiteriana de Goshen está abierta a los residentes de GCSD el segundo sábado de cada mes a las 9:30 a.m. y el último jueves de cada mes a las 6 p.m.

Si tiene alguna pregunta sobre este proyecto, comuníquese con la escuela al 845-615-6635.
