Friday, May 18th!
Bridges is an annual outreach program that allows Salt Brook students to experience the joys of community service and giving by preparing bagged lunches for those in need. For almost 30 years, the Bridges program has served the Newark, New York, Irvington and Summit communities. Their mission is to bring together the housed and the homeless in the community.
On May 18th, Salt Brook students will be preparing bagged lunches for the local BRIDGES program. BRIDGES delivers the bagged lunches to needy people in our area (NY, Newark and Irvington) through the Oakes Center in Summit. The PTA will provide the bags, supplies to make sandwiches and napkins.
Children need to bring the following items to school to include in the lunches. Even if your child is not participating they are encouraged to bring the below items. Each student will prepare approximately 4 lunches:
EXTRA FOOD IS ALWAYS WELCOME AND NEEDED.
We can only accommodate 80 children this year, so make sure you sign up online using the Bridges Registration button on this page.
The sandwich making/assembly of the bag lunches will take place in the cafeteria after school on Friday, May 18th for Grades 1st through 6th from 3:00 to 3:30
Pick up is promptly at 3:30
Parent volunteers help make it happen! Please consider volunteering to help.
