Compassion Matters - Pass It On! 11-15-17

The Italian Club (moderated by Ms. DeMaio) delivered packages of cans to a local organization called LAMP ministry in Throggs Neck. The vocation of LAMP is to help everyone know God’s love. LAMP ministry preaches at St. Thomas Aquinas Church and Corpus Christi, proclaiming the word of God and feeding the poor.

Although LAMP ministry delivers food to three different parts of the Bronx, Preston’s packages will be delivered specifically to homeless families and pregnant mothers since these packages crafted with love. According to the organizers of LAMP, “the greatest poverty that the poor experience is the lack of spirituality.”  Here's to spreading God's love!

The Italian Club and Honor Society celebrated Thanksgiving early with members of the senior citizen community. The guests were greeted with Italian cookies, pizza, refreshments, and a chance to win cash prizes playing tambola (bingo).

  

 Students were thankful to share an evening with such incredible carriers of their culture, wisdom, and experience. The Senior citizens were amazed by all the charity the Italian Club and Honor Society does!

Unfortunately, many elderly individuals are manipulated, disregarded, and taken for granted.   However, the Italian Club adopts senior citizens into the Preston community. The Italian Club prepared for the next Senior Citizen Night by crafting candy packages "made with love!" Megi Alikaj (Class of 2019) enjoys engaging with the senior citizens because "they are full of life and excitement especially when playing "tombola" (Bingo in Italian) in hopes of winning prizes." The Italian Club defies the misconception of age barriers as Preston students interact and bring happiness to the senior citizen community.

Some candy packages will also be set aside for a LAMP ministry. Embracing another marginalized group, the Italian Club writes letters to the homeless, hoping to inspire and uplift those who are struggling economically.

 Our women of dignity, honor, respect, and compassion represented Preston High School at Orchard Beach’s Walk For Breast Cancer Awareness. Rather than concentrating their energy in one cause, Preston’s compassion is felt by all in need, despite geographical, language, and religious barriers.  Our Cheerleaders even cheered for the cause!  A special thank you to Preston's Athletic Department and Italian Club for organizing the pink Tshirts.

Once the calendar reaches October, the acts of compassion officially commence at Preston High School! The Italian club crafted goodie bags to distribute to the elderly community at Preston's bingo night. Also, members sold pink tickets, including lip care items and hair extension, to support breast cancer awareness.

Preston's annual food drive began as well. Last year, the Preston community collected 8823 lbs of canned goods, rice, and other food items. This year, the standard has been set for 9000 lbs among the 482 students and 59 faculty members. Students were exhilarated by a sense of purpose and duty during Food Drive Assembly Sing-a-long!
