YCS Cares: Help Everyone Enjoy Thanksgiving…
Each time you use your Community Partners card during checkout at Fairway, your purchases turn into cash for YCS!  See the attached flyer for lots of great holiday offers, and mark your calendar for the the next Fairway Double Day on Tuesday, December 6th
New York Common Pantry
Help us make sure everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving this year by donating cornbread mix, stuffing, olive oil, garlic powder and poultry seasoning. New York Common Pantry will pick up our donations and deliver them in time for the holidays.  Bins for donations will be available in the East entrance.
Election Day Bake Sale a Big Success!
Bake sale chairs Alex and Caroline Oberweger would like to thank everyone who helped out with the Election Day bake sale. Long lines to vote (and a few broken scanners) meant people very much needed the sweet treats and coffee we were providing, and the event raised $2600 for YCS.  Many thanks to Sarina Appel, Rebecca Ashley, Ruth Berghammer, Abby Bessinger, Lauren Blair, Nesli Ciner, Alison Dow, Ileana Futter, Paula Grady, Kate Hrobsky, Tal Landa, Michelle Levitt, Arielle Luijpers, Nancy Martin, Sarah McCash, Nina Miller, Shana Miner Ladin, Sheree Murphy, Sara Orton, Adeleh Petochi – Nassri, Gisela Schiffer, Janice Szabo, Himena Yamane, Linda Greenblatt, Allison Gutstein, Stephanie Rhodes and all our YCS and Middle school helpers!
