Parkway Students and Staff "Spring into Action with T.A.S.K."
For the past five years the Parkway School community partnered with the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (T.A.S.K.) to create bagged breakfasts and lunches to coincide with Parkway’s annual “Sock and Toiletry Drive” as a way to give back to the community. This yearly effort has been funded annually by a grant from the Ewing Public Education Foundation. This year the Parkway School community endeavored to work creatively within the constraints of the global pandemic in order to fulfill the program’s objectives.
During “Spring into Action” week the students of Parkway School drew pictures and wrote letters to send to the clients of T.A.S.K. as a means of encouragement. Parkway School students were not able to make bagged breakfasts and lunches this year to send over to the facility but found a way to keep the shelves stocked. Parkway used the grant funds to purchase food items and utensils.
Students participated in a community service/caring lesson and activity. Additionally, information was sent home to Parkway families of ideas for group community service projects to participate in at home. The goal at Parkway is to help the students understand the importance of being a positive and generous member of the community who gives of themselves in order to help others.
