Maspeth’s I.s. 73 Students Build with Charity

Hoping to make life better for residents in need, students at I.S. 73 in Maspeth have participated in a host of community service projects launched by the school’s Builders Club. One of the projects was a food drive in which non-perishable food items were donated by students to benefit the food pantry and soup kitchen at Blessed Mary Help of Christians Church in Woodside. Students also participated in a project called “Coupon Clippers,” in which they collected and filed hundreds of coupons. The savings slips were then passed on to seniors at the Maspeth Self-Help Senior Center to help them purchase essential items. Finally, I.S. 73 students donated scores of toys to School District 24’s annual toy drive and the “Homes for the Homeless” family shelter. The Builders’ Club at I.S. 73 is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Maspeth.
