Please join us to participate in #GivingTuesday on Tuesday, Nov. 29, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Your donation will help pay for critical school programs and items that are not funded by the NYC Department of Education. These include enrichment programs, such as music, visual arts, dance, architecture, and items such as laptop storage/charging carts, library books, Lego robotic kits, microscopes, and gym equipment. Your donation also helps fund teaching assistants for the lower grades. Every gift will make a difference!
