We were so honored to be a small part of this wonderful project. Big thank you to everyone at Williamsburg HS for Architecture and Design for involving us and for doing such amazing work! Please see the post below for more details:
WHSAD kicked off 2017 with its first community service project. On January 18, 2017 WHSAD students and SKILLS USA members delivered over 400 cans of food to City Harvest’s collection site at Engine 229 Ladder 146 on Richardson Street in Greenpoint/Williamsburg, Brooklyn. WHSAD students and their families generously donated all of these canned goods. A special thanks to Heather Butts of H.E.A.L.T.H for YOUTHS for working with our students and SKILLS USA members to assist in the collection and drop off of the cans. Stay tuned to upcoming community service projects that will be sponsored by SKILLS USA and our partners.
Wonderful day at Markham Gardens yesterday 1/18. We had our amazing homework help and reading program led by Ms. Louise and Ms. Hallie. Then we had a surprise guest basketball session for the teens with Coach Leo. He was awesome and really spoke to the youth about life beyond basketball. Fabulous day, thank you everyone!
What an wonderful and appropriate way to spend part of Martin Luther King, Jr day! Meet the awesome, amazing, fantastic Marc Tiegel! He and his father found out about our soccer team and contacted us in connection with Marc’s Bar Mitzvah Project. He wanted to have a truly meaningful giving back project and has been working with us to donate both equipment and funds to our soccer program students. Today we met Marc and his father Steven Tiegel and they gave us the donations they gathered for our students. It was so fantastic! We are overwhelmed and so touched. Most of our students have no proper soccer supplies. This donation will also allow us to add students to our program and get healthy snacks and other equipment. Thank you Marc for your generosity of spirit and heart! Stay tuned as we will honor Marc at an upcoming practice/game and he can meet the team.
