Just before our community headed out on winter break, Rutgers Prep Parent Association member Karen Emmet as well as other dedicated members of our Parent Association helped coordinate a school-wide coat drive.
Partnering with St. Ann’s Soup Kitchen in Newark, which last year provided 500 winter coats to those in need, Rutgers Prep delivered 35 large bags full of winter essentials in a year when, because of the storm and its aftermath, families who had never previously requested assistance were suddenly in need.
The pictures shared with us by the soup kitchen serve as a wonderful reminder of the power of community:
A warm thank-you (pun intended!) to all those who helped to make this event such a success.
Our Diwali Celebration has been rescheduled
for Sunday, December 2nd. We hope you’ll join us!
