The Parent Association’s Community Service Committee is dedicated to helping Princeton Montessori School give back to the community. We are pleased to announce the start of our8th Annual Food Driveto benefit the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK). TASK provides food for those who are hungry, and offers programs to encourage self-sufficiency and improve the quality of life of its patrons. To learn more about this organization, visithttp://www.trentonsoupkitchen.org/.
In addition to helping our less fortunate neighbors in Mercer County, this activity is designed to involve our students so that they may learn about the needs of others, and how their efforts can make a difference. From Primary to Middle School, our children will participate in age-appropriate ways, from making cards with words of kindness, to decorating and assembling the food bags.
Our goal is to assemble 300+ dinner bags and deliver them to TASK in March. We encourage all members of our school community to participate. We had a successful Food Drive last year providing almost 400 dinners to families in need. Let’s do it again this year!
