276 Cares Committee – This committee creates opportunities for 276 students and families to participate in projects that are good for our community and our environment. Our monthly clothing and textile drives are a great way to give good clothes to people in need and to recycle clothing and textiles that are no longer usable. During last year’s City Harvest food drive, our 5th graders helped us to collect over 1500 items for hungry New Yorkers. Contact us to learn more about these and other rewarding projects. The more help we have, the more we can do! E-mail:
