THE LORRAINE HANSBERRY ACADEMY • P.S. 214
Achieving Starts with Believing
PS 214 in the Bronx, NY is a Tier I school, which houses 1,074 students. Out of that number, 13% live in shelters and 855 students receive free or reduced lunch. Many of the children, as well as their families, do not enjoy the holiday season because they do not have the funds or resources to do so.
In an effort to make it an enjoyable holiday season for these less fortunate students, PS214 is hosting a first ever Winter Wonderland. Author, Christine DerOhannesian will be donating Santa's Magical Chimney Gift Sets to 200-250 families and all of the Shelters. She is also searching for donations of about the same 250 gift items or a gift cards and a few Christmas trees as well. She and the staff of PS214 are coming together and are committed to have these students and their families experience a magical memory.
