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!

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!
