The P.S. 54 library media center was so fortunate to have partnered with NY Cares this school year. NY Cares organized a holiday event that brought over a 100 Aerospostale employees into the school to read How the Grinch Stole Christmas one on one with kindergarteners to 2nd graders. Many of the children were special education students, English language learners and at risk students. NY Cares and Aerospostale also guided groups of children in several different craft tables. Chlidren made snowflake magnets, decorated cookies, made stockings and gingerbread houses. Before ending the day, students had hot chocolate and ate their cookies. Children were completely at peace and amazed that total strangers cared enough about them to come in and give them 100% of their time and attention. One child said, “This is the best day of my life,” as he left the library. Thank you NY Cares and Aerospostale for caring and coming to the Bronx!!!!!
