All schools in the Bethlehem Central School District are participating in the annual Holiday Caring and Sharing Drive that will provide assistance for community families during the holiday season. For several years, generous community sponsors and district staff and students have helped the district provide holiday meals and gift cards for families ahead of the December break.

Each school will be collecting non-perishable food items between November 26-December 11. Families of students at each school are invited to donate, when possible, food items that will be packaged for the holidays and shared with district families in need. Suggested lists for each grade level are being shared with parents by each of the schools. The donated food will be distributed on Saturday, December 15.

Do you know a BCSD family in need of assistance?

Families can also register by contacting the district’s Special Education and Student Services (SESS) department, which organizes the Caring and Sharing effort. The SESS phone is 518-439-8886 or email Sherri Fitzpatrick at
