PS 45 / IS61 Clothing & Food Drive!

Event details:

As you many not be aware, there are many needy families that attend PS45 as well as IS61.  In response to that need, they have established a food and clothing pantry.  They collect non-perishable food items and kids clothing up to 8th grade (including infant clothing). 

Boxed non- perishable foods only (no can opener foods)

You can bring all items to 500 Bard Ave (white house behind CVS). Look for the marked receptacle in the driveway. Drop off anytime and tell your neighbors. 

"We Love West Brighton"
Litter Clean-up!

We Love West Brighton Event 

Event details:

The West Brighton litter clean up is an event we organize in the spring and fall. Keeping the beautification of our neighborhood is important. We cover Forest Ave to Bement Ave & Castelton Ave to Bement Ave and the streets in-between. 

SUPPLIES ARE PROVIDED: gloves, grabbers, brooms, rakes, and trash bags via The Department of Sanitation. In addition to cleaning up the litter, we also remove all the illegal signs off fences and the illegal stickers off poles (please bring a scrapper). 

Community service certificates are given to all students.

Please share this event as MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK!
