Students at Tappan Hill School Participate in Community Service Project

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr., Day, students at the Tappan Hill School in Tarrytown participated in a new community service recycling program called "Lend a Helping Hand." 

Each classroom collected refundable cans and bottles for the month of January. The money collected from recycling the items will be donated to Paws Crossed Animal Rescue in Elmsford, a private organization that relies on donations from fundraising events, as well as grants, to rescue homeless dogs and cats. 

An assembly was held at the school and each classroom presented the number of cans/bottles they had collected.  The top two winners received a prize. Ruthanne Worden, a volunteer at Paws Crossed and a retired BOCES occupational therapist, gave a presentation about the organization. 

The Tappan Hill School students will continue to collect cans and bottles throughout the year to donate to this worthwhile organization.
