Perkins School Holds Holiday Food, Mitten and Hat drive

The Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers of Perkins School, in collaboration with the faculty, staff, parents, and students, spent the month of December 2016 collecting for the Newark Food Closet.
“Annually, we collect non-perishable food items and winter accessories to share with Newark families in need. At this time of year, when it is so easy to focus on what we might get, it is good practice to focus on what we might give,”said Lucille Aranzullo, the Perkins UPK teacher who oversees the drive each year. “Thank you to everyone who helped make this drive a success. Also, a special thank you to John Meath, who delivers the boxes of food and bags of hats and mittens to the Food Closet.”
