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! 11-17-17

The end of the food drive is always an exciting day in Preston’s “compassion matters campaign.” In total, the Preston community collected an astonishing 10,240 pounds of food. Students spent hours passing food along assembly lines from the makeshift pantry on the stage to various pickup trucks, a bus, and cars in the faculty parking lot.

Approximately 3,500 lbs went to the Divine Compassion Food Pantry in Dover Plains, 2,000 lbs went Mercy Center in the Bronx, 2,000 lbs went to St. Raymond’s pantry in the Bronx, and 2000 lbs went to Our Lady of Assumption Pantry in the Bronx. 70 food packages were delivered to individual families. With our deeply rooted determination and passion, Preston will never settle for defeat. The charity we accomplish through the food drive every year is the epitome of compassion.
