Students and families from (HANC) Plainview Elementary School responded to an emergency food request by FEGS, on behalf of a Senior Housing facility in Flushing.
FEGS was desperately trying to coordinate Passover food donations for a large group of homebound seniors. These seniors are from the Former Soviet Union -- some Holocaust survivors -- who cannot shop for themselves at this time.
HANC's Plainview families stepped up to the plate, providing several large boxes of Kosher-for-Passover food items. A group of students then embarked on special shopping trip to a local market to fill in the gaps with needed items.
“We were so impressed by how quickly our families mobilized and responded to this last-minute request,” said principal. “This is yet another example of the social responsibility that is a core element of HANC’s curriculum.”
HANC provides academic excellence for students from all Jewish backgrounds, from toddler through high school. HANC is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and the New York State Education Department.
FEGS is one of the largest and most diversified not-for-profit health and human services organizations in the United States.
