Funds and Supplies for Good Causes

This week brought reports of volunteer efforts by area residents to raise money and supplies for Haiti and other good causes.

On Saturday, the SHS Track Team held a Run for Haiti. Track team members lined up sponsors to contribute as they ran around the track and accrued donations for their efforts. Coach Richard Clark was pleased to report that about three quarters of the teams' 92 members participated, and if all the pledges come in, the team will have raised $12,000 for the American Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti. If you wish to add your contribution to the donation, contact rclark@scarsdaleschools.org.

Also on Saturday, members of the SHS Breast Cancer Awareness ran their "Tickled Pink" sale during the freshman, J.V. and Varsity Basketball games. Club members had gathered donations from area retailers and baked cookies and cupcakes to sell at the event to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The club wishes to thank Jewels by Joanne, Landsberg Jewelers, Pamela Robbins, Searle, Wilson and Sons and Zachys for their contributions. Pictured here are club members Andrea Goldwasser, Jenn Simkins, Danielle Berger, Mallory Minster, Eve Muller (Secretary), and Harley Landsberg (President). For more information or to contribute, contact SHSBreastCancerAwareness@gmail.com

The Greenburgh Police responded to the AFYA Foundation's appeal for medical supplies for Haiti. A portion of the supplies stored by the department for civil emergencies were due to expire soon and these were donated to AFYA on Tuesday 1/19. The Department donated bandages, burn kits, surgical sponges, stretcher sheets, oxygen masks, gauze, bandages, trauma dressings and aprons and gloves. These items were scheduled to be shipped on 1/22/10.
