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 our 10th Annual Food Drive to 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, visit http://www.trentonsoupki
Our goal is to assemble 300+ dinner bags to deliver to TASK on April 5th (donation deadline: March 31st). We encourage all members of our school community to participate. This school-wide effort has consistently been a huge success. Let’s do it again in 2022!
Children’s Participation: The food drive involves our students. It gives them the opportunity to learn about the needs of others and empowers them to make a difference in their own community. Primary to Middle School children participate in the food drive through age-appropriate activities, from making cards to decorating and assembling the food bags.
How to Participate: We have divided the food items needed by school program, as outlined below. We hope you will join us in contributing!
In-person donation delivery: You may deliver items for donation at drop-off/pick-up. There will be bins outside to place your items.
Delivery via Amazon: You can ship an Amazon order directly to the school.
