The Season of Thanks! P.S. 361 Q Gives Back with our First Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive!

This week, P.S. 361 Q families were invited to give donations of food to be delivered to the St. Mary's Food Pantry in Woodside.  Students eagerly carried their canned foods and other items into our creatively decorated boxes for donation.  Ms. Frik and Ms. Bezanson gave their time to bring the donated items to the pantry.  Ms. Frik shared, "Millie (Ms. Bezanson) drove us out to St. Mary's food pantry right here in Woodside this morning where we met a sweet lady named Lourdes who recieved all of the donations.  She gave us a run down and a little tour of the food pantry.  It was super organized in there with labels and everything!  WOW!  They service around 250 families in need within the community."  

A big thank you to our P.S. 361 Q PTA for organizing this effort and for the reminder of the importance of giving back to our community!
