Spotlight on Service Learning: Great Giveaway 2018

Natasha Ray '21 and Hope Jerris '21 announced that the annual Princeton Day School Great Giveaway event will take place from June 4-June 7. A schoolwide service learning project, the Great Giveaway occurs at the end of every school year when PDS students donate gently used school supplies to those who are in need of them.

As Natasha and Hope noted in their announcement, "Not only does the Great Giveaway help people in need, but it drastically reduces the amount of trash that the PDS community produces during the last week of school by discouraging students from throwing away their gently used school supplies."

Students are encouraged to bring in gently used school supplies and/or donate supplies while cleaning out lockers during the last week of school. Upper School students will be on hand to sort and package the school supplies for donation. The donations will benefit the Eastern Service Workers Association.
