PS 41 and City Harvest Kick Off Annual Food Drive!
On October 27, PS 41 was proud to host the kick-off event of the annual City Harvest Food Drive. Last year, PS 41 collected the most cans of any school in New York City so City Harvest asked us to host the event. We were honored to oblige.
PS 41 collected 11,000 pounds of cans last year for this very important initiative. Our parent-sponsored group, 41 Cares, has designated the annual City Harvest Food Can Drive as one of the community give-back efforts that the group coordinates with parents, staff and students each year.
The ceremony was amazing, with Principal Shannon and her staff welcoming guests from The Daily News, WPLJ Radio, WNBC-TV News, the New York City Fire Department, the New York City Police Department, the Starr Foundation, and others. And, of course, the event would not be complete without City Harvest Super Driver, Donte, who has been with City Harvest for 18 years, collecting and delivering the food to those who need it most!
Though PS 41 would like very much to once again earn the title of "Most Cans Collected", we are most excited to think of schools all over the city making their own winning "record" of cans collected this year.
Pictured are Principal Shannon, Assistant Principal Hetal Patel, City Harvest driver Donte, and our students who acted as "ambassadors" for our guests that day.
