Tuxedo Park School students are working hard this year to make a difference in the community.
Two 6th graders, Solomon and Maddie, have been good friends since they met at TPS in 2018. TPS emphasizes character development, with an emphasis on "Creating Kind, Fair, and Responsible Citizens."
When FreshDirect recently expanded their delivery service to Tuxedo, Solomon and Maddie noticed the reusable grocery bags piling up at home. Sloatsburg Food Pantry recently announced its move into a new facility. When the two friends discovered that the Pantry was spending money to purchase boxes and bags, it didn't take long before the Tuxedo Bag Project was born! They believe that the Pantry's should use its funds to focus on bringing food for the community and that the reusable grocery bags would be so beneficial for The Sloatsburg Pantry! They wrote up a detailed project plan, designed flyers and logos (pictured above), and met with Town and Village officials about collection boxes and marketing.
They already collected 150 bags in just a week and a half! Help them reach their goal of 1,000 reusable grocery bags for the Sloatsburg Food Pantry by dropping clean reusable grocery bags off at Tuxedo Park School.
We are so proud of our kind and thoughtful students for their initiatives, and we are delighted to support them however we can!
