The Bronx Urban Community School

From Program Manager Diana Yi: 


"There were about 3 racks of prom dresses hanging in the CSD's office, and I learned the back story. 

 


Because there was a need for prom dresses and graduation clothes at the school, the CSD (Maggie Prisinzano from Leake and Watts) and her fantastic team coordinated a drive among their personal and other networks to collect dresses and suits. Maggie ‎drove as far as Virginia to pick up donations.

 

Also, they had another clothing drive led by the Family Engagement Specialist from Leake and Watts  and collected enough for parents to "shop" at the end of parent-teacher conferences. "
