Compassion Matters... Pass It On! 10-5-22

The Compassion Connection Club is back! The biggest club in Preston kicked off their first meeting of the school year with 140 sandwiches for the hungry ministered to by Lamp Ministries and 40 candy bags and 40 cards for senior citizens from the Preston Center of Compassion! We are so happy to be back and have a strong start! Exactly 100 students were in attendance.  Let's go Compassion Panthers!

Compassion Matters... Pass It On! 10-4-22

On September 16th, the Preston High School community gathered in the gym to root for the Junior Varsity and Varsity volleyball panthers.  Our volleyball players took on Maria Regina High School, in tribute to Amanda Tamburrino, Preston senior, who passed away on September 13th after her difficult battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Our Panthers ran a bake sale and collected entrance fees at the door. $3,411 were raised!   In Amanda's memory, all of these proceeds will be donated to the Westchester Medical Center for Hodgkin's Lymphoma research. As students, faculty, family, and guests sported their best purple attire for Hodgkin's Lymphoma awareness, there was not a dry eye in the gym and there has never been a bigger sense of Panther pride in these hallways!

Compassion Matters - Pass It On! 10-26-17

October 26, 2017
By Compassion Panther

Another week down - another 1000 pounds of food donated! The Preston community contends with only 3 weeks left of the food drive. At the midway point of our food drive, students have donated a total of 3345 pounds of non-perishable foods.  Compassion Connection members sorted and pulled out food items that will be needed to make Thanksgiving baskets and packages by Italian Club and Spanish Honor Society.  The rest was packed up and made ready for a pantry pickup. 

Mercy Center came with a pickup truck and assembly lines moved 2000 pounds of food from the stage to the faculty parking lot.   If our goal is reached, we will collect 9000lbs and get a day off from school! With the clock ticking and the goal awaiting, incentive is high and the tone in the school is a generous one!
