SAS Elementary School is Sharing the Warmth
Monday, January 9th, 2023: Now through January 20th, Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary School is leading a donation drive for the non-profit organization "We Rise Above the Streets Recovery Outreach, Inc." This charity has been led by Al-amin Muhammad for over five years and has focused on advocating for homeless/underrepresented populations in Syracuse. The organization helps provide these groups with food, clothing, and basic hygiene items. Every Saturday, Al-amin and his crew of volunteers host a 'Sandwich Saturday' at 10 am in Billings Park, where they hand out food and other necessities to individuals and families struggling to provide for themselves. The charity's main mission is to help break the cycle of homelessness and crime by showing them how to live to their full potential.
We will collect new children and adult winter apparel and travel-sized hygiene products to donate to "We Rise Above the Streets" at the end of the month. If your student brings in three items, they will earn one dress-down pass. We encourage you to make a difference and share the warmth!
