Thank You!

I would like to thank everyone for their help with the Hurricane Sandy Collection.  Many Pine Glen families, teachers, and friends donated to this great cause.  My father came today and filled his pick up truck with all of the donations.  Unfortunately I will not be able to make the trip to New Jersey with him due to a schedule change but he will be heading down with some other volunteers.  Thanks again  for making this a success!

Pine Glen Collection for Hurricane Sandy Residents

At Pine Glen School we decided that it would be really kind to help the people who live in the areas that were hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy.  The Pine Glen Community is collecting items such as non-perishable foods, new blankets, new linens, new clothing, toiletries, cleaning supplies, etc. in the lobby area of Pine Glen School until Wednesday, November 21st.  All the students at Pine Glen are excited to help and are extremely empathetic to the struggles people continue to endure on a daily basis.  In addition to donating needed supplies my class has written ideas on how you can help.  Please consider joining the efforts of the Pine Glen Community by donating to this worthy cause to help our fellow Americans who have experienced such devastation. 

 Here are the ideas that the amazing children in 210 thought of to help the people of New York and New Jersey!
  • You can help the people who don’t have anything by giving them pillows and blankets -Grace
