WEST END DAY SCHOOL (NEW YORK, NY)
Last year, West End Day School saw #GivingTuesday as the perfect opportunity to teach their students the importance of giving and started a new tradition of a Community Thankfulness Day to coincide with #GivingTuesday. Leading up to #GivingTuesday 2017, the school community collected backpacks, school supplies, games and books for children affected by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. On #GivingTuesday students packed the backpacks with supplies and a handwritten note to offer support. A board member of the school assisted with the transfer of supplies to Puerto Rico.
