The proceeds from this week's Food Fest Thursday-Friday will be going to City Meals on Wheels, an organization that serves homebound elderly in all five boroughs. Without this mobile food pantry, many New Yorkers, unable to walk to the supermarket due to age and disability, would be at risk for malnourishment. Preston’s compassion permeates throughout New York, by supporting this organization.
This week, another charitable act took the form of hurricane relief for Puerto Rico. The proceeds from two FoodFest Friday collections totaled $135. They were used to purchase needed items that are being collected by Preston's World Relief Club. Not only do we embrace those in need at the community level, but Preston’s compassion reaches over sea.
Preston's Food Fest Friday is opportunity for students to donate their spare change to particular cause every Friday in exchange for a lollipop. This is a small way in which Preston's club, Compassion & Connection, make a difference in a world full of people in need.
The past two weeks’ proceeds made a $166 donation to The National Catholic Education Association's hurricane relief efforts possible. "Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart" -Winnie the Pooh
