With schools officially reopened at least partially, local groups are helping students get ready for the new year.
Last week, Woodside on the Move teamed up with Mount Sinai Queens and State Senator Michael Gianaris for a school supply drive.
“COVID-19 is an unprecedented crisis,” the state senator said, “but Queens has risen to the challenge and our neighbors have answered the call of those in need.”
Michael Vaz, executive director of Woodside on the Move, joined Gianaris and Caryn Schwab, executive director of Mount Sinai Queens, at the drive.
“Working with a school age population is challenging in these unique times,” he said, “but through partnership with Senator Michael Gianaris and Mount Sinai, we are ensuring that all young people in our community have the school supplies they need to succeed.”
