Pelham Parkway Book Bag, Supplies, and More Giveaway

PPNA and Open Hands Book Bag School Supply and More Giveaway

By Robert Press

The Pelham Parkway Neighborhood Association and The Albanian Open Hands Association joined with Councilman Mark Gjonaj, Assemblywoman Nathelia Fernandez, and State Senator Alessandra Biaggi for a book bag, school supplies, and more giveaway inside the new Destination Tomorrow building on Lydig Avenue. 

A line of tables were set up so when children walked in they first received a new book bag from the hundreds that were on hand. The children would then walk down the line of tables with their parents, who would choose which schools supplies their child/children would need. When the book bags were full as they went outside, Councilman Mark Gjonaj was there with a cooler full of delicious fruit bars, and other snacks for the children to enjoy.
