BCSD Holiday Food Drive

  • If you are in need of assistance or know someone in need please see this link for more information

Things of My Very Own Clothing Drive

Two of our fifth graders, Lili Suich and Lily Kahn, wrote a proposal to have our school collect winter clothing to donate to Things of My Own – an organization that services needy families in Schenectady.   We are collecting winter coats, winter gloves, winter hats and scarves, clothing newborn to age 10. Items should be new or very good condition.

Toys for Tots

Once again, we will participate in collecting toys for Toys for Tots, which is sponsored by the United States Marines.  Please help out less fortunate children by donating an unwrapped toy. There are boxes in the lobby, by the cafeteria, and in the primary wing. The toy drive will run from November 19 – December 14th.
