School's Back In Session
The First Congregational Church of Rockaway Beach is asking the community to help out, so that all of our local schoolchildren can succeed in school this year. To achieve this goal, the church will be accepting donations of school uniforms and backpacks this month.
New or lightly-used backpacks and elementary and middle school uniforms, in any sizes, can be brought to the church, located at 320 Beach 94 Street, near the entrance ramp to the Cross Bay Bridge, on Wednesday, October 14 or Wednesday, October 21, between 9:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. The church will then distribute the items to local schools.
Local merchants who wish to donate new uniforms, backpacks or school supplies may also call Vivian Carter, advertising representative at The Wave, 718-634-4000, extension 32, to arrange for a drop-off or pickup. Items will be collected through October 21.
