Approximately 30 members of the RKYHS Homeless Awareness Club went out in the cold into the streets of Newark the day before Thanksgiving to hand out food and clothes. They brought with them cornbread baked by the JKHA second graders, and food was also donated by the school caterer Shimtal Caterers. JKHA second graders read the book “The Hundred Dresses”in which the main character is teased for always wearing the same faded dress. The book encouraged second graders to organize a school-wide clothing drive to help those in need. Second graders were thrilled to bring all that they had collected, including jackets, gloves, scarves, blankets and more to RKYHS prior to the trip. Students in the Homeless Awareness Club made cards to go along with the various items collected by second grade in their clothing drive.
