Last Thursday, to conclude the Parents Association's Thanksgiving Food Drive,
the Parents Association, students, faculty, and staff came together to sort and pack the donations of food that came in from the Dwight community. 24 boxes (400 pounds) of donated beans, oatmeal, cornmeal, and frosting made this year's drive another monumental success!
Why those items? This year, New York Common Pantry
, who Dwight School partnered with for this initiative, asked each participating organization to donate specific items to help them stock ample supplies during the winter months, when they need it the most.
Special thanks to Aileen Bruner (Jake '23) for organizing this event, Jessica Lindsey (David '18, Maggie '19, JackieRay '21), our nine student volunteers, logistical support from Activities and Community Service Coordinator Neil Brier, Timothy House Manager Hugo Pineda, and the maintenance department!
