Saint David's Cares About Cavallaro Cares


This Friday, November 9, the Saint David's boys, led by their Student Council, assisted with Opportunity Cavallaro Cares. Coordinating with a Saint David's parent who is a teacher at I.S. 281 (Cavallaro) located on 24th Ave. in Brooklyn, the boys collected packages of supplies needed by the nearby Seagate community in Coney Island, hard hit by the hurricane.

Throughout the day Friday, boys collected and packaged warm blankets, canned food, packaged foods, and cleaning supplies, such as bleach, heavy duty garbage bags, and gloves.

Saint David's families dropped off additional packages and supplies on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning in front of Saint David's and eighth grade boys organized, packaged and prepared the donations for transport. A group of Saint David's parents then loaded up their cars and delivered the packages to I.S. 281 in Brooklyn on Saturday.  From there, the Cavallaro staff and volunteers delivered the packages to individual homes.

Communities helping communities: true community.
