In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the staff, families and students of Strawtown Elementary School participated in a Giving Parade this past Friday.  Since our annual Halloween parade was canceled, it was decided to hold a Giving Parade instead.  School supply donations were collected for the students of damaged Staten Island Schools, I.S. 24 and P.S. 8.   The students of Strawtown made supportive posters, donated new school supplies, and also donated cleaning supplies to the Town of Stony Point.  Clarkstown South's VAASA and SADD clubs also helped with collecting donations.

In all, seven carloads of donations were collected and then distributed over the weekend!  My kids were really excited about being able to help other students in need and were happy to help shop for the items they donated during the parade.  It is wonderful to continue to see the outpouring of help and support from communities not as badly affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Strawtown will be collecting now for People to People's Thanksgiving Food Drive to help people in our community who are in need and/or affected by Sandy.
