Three City schools made the news for their charitable efforts this holiday season.

The Anderson School in Manhattan and P.S. 101 and P.S. 303 in Queens were recognized in two separate articles in DNAinfo regarding their acts of charity and commitment to helping others in need.

Parents and students at The Anderson School raised money to purchase a washer and dryer for students and families in need at P.S. 149 in Harlem, and Anderson School students also helped organize a clothing drive to provide P.S. 149 students with new and gently-used navy colored clothing that meets P.S. 149’s uniform requirements.

Likewise, Principal Monique Lopez-Paniagua of P.S. 101 worked with P.S. 101 teachers, students, and parents to organize several drives for charities they collectively decided to support for the holiday season, including the annual Candy Cane Lane event at the Floating Hospital, Ellie’s Hats, Pennies for Patients, and New York Cares. P.S. 101 also teamed up with the nearby P.S. 303 to help support P.S. 303’s “Socks in a Box” initiative, a donation bin campaign to collect warm socks for those in need. In addition to supporting various drives, students at P.S. 101 were also asked to do something in their classes that was related to charity, and students responded by making scarves and picture frames with inspirational quotes for those who are most in need.

Thank you, Anderson School, P.S. 101, and P.S. 303, for setting great examples for the rest of us to follow throughout the year!
