On Saturday, November 21st, 2020, Weequahic High School and Chancellor Avenue School partnered to plan a Thanksgiving Turkey & Warm Coat Giveaway took place at Untermann Field.
Principal Pitts of Chancellor Avenue School noted "We managed to give out: turkeys, new warm coats, fresh fruits/veggies, Tropicana juice products, "Beyond Meat" for Vegans/Vegetarians, Muslims and/or those looking for healthy food options - Supported the Community with Medicaid/Medicare Sign-up, and Free COVID Testing."
It was truly an amazing and well-organized event. Thank You to the Newark Police Department who managed a safe event consisting of safety measures inline with Social Distancing.
We would like to thank the many sponsors and partners who supported us in making this event a success. We look forward to planning more events of this magnitude to spread the love and resources beyond our individual school communities.
