I’d like to give a shoutout to GWPTA and Feeding Westchester. I stopped by their food distribution today where over 375 families were provided withgroceries. It was a great community effort by George Washington teachers administrators and staff, PTA members, and current and former GW families.It speaks to the generosity of our community, and makes us #WPproud.
Remember we are standing together by staying apart!
