Boston Helps Bring Relief to PS 43
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
Leandra Aguirre is a 6th grade teacher at Far Rockaway PS 43, who has been working non stop with fellow co-workers on bringing relief to their students. Ms. Aguirre had informed me that her mother, Janis Aguirre and best friend Elsa Bourque, a 2nd grade teacher at Thomas J. Kenny Elementary school in Boston; had organized a donation drive and that they would be delivering the donations themselves.
Today was the day for Boston to show their love for PS 43. Janis Aguirre, Elsa Bourque, Richard Bourque, Bruce Larson and Mike Do had drove from Boston to Far Rockaway to distribute all the donations that they had collected. The PS 43 students and their families were overwhelmed by Boston's generosity and could not believe that so many cared about their well being.
Special Thanks to the organizations that had donated:
Boston Fire Department, Battleground Games & Hobbies, members of Harvard Medical School, the Boston are rape crisis center, graduate students from UMass Boston college of education, Hanover high schools, Ms. Bourque's students, family and friends.
