The GNPS Clothing Pantry and the South Middle Community Closet recently partnered to host a coat distribution event at Saddle Rock School. More than 100 members of the Great Neck community attended the event to receive free winter coats and warm clothing for children and adults.
Coats and clothing were provided through collection efforts by the Sephardic Heritage Alliance, Inc. (SHAI) and by the generous staff and families of the Great Neck Public Schools. Additionally, as part of a service learning project, Saddle Rock students conducted a hat and glove drive and prepared care kits filled with warm winter accessories.
The coat distribution event was organized by administrators, social workers, psychologists, ENL teachers, and educators from Saddle Rock and South Middle schools.
