The 5th graders will be selling hot cocoa, baked goods and holiday mini pops during the shopping spree! Cocoa and treats are $1 each, mini pops are $2 each. Please bring cash to purchase!

Support the Homeless This Holiday Season

For the past several years, members of the PRS community have helped Friends of the Homeless (FoH) of the South Shore provide Christmas gifts to families living in homeless shelters or transitional housing by donating newly purchased gifts. Again this year, the PRS Community Service Committee is sponsoring this holiday gift program. If you are interested in helping out the homeless this holiday season by sponsoring an individual or family, please contact Jen Korn ( FoH aims to give three gifts to each person sponsored, totaling about $60.00 per person. We provide donors with the first name, age, gender, and sizes for each person on the list, as well as the client’s interests or gift suggestions as a guide for shopping. Thank you for your support.

A HUGE thank you to our Road Race Committee, especially Committee Chairs Katherine Rachalski and Meg DeSanta, as well as all our awesome sponsors!
