Students at Alfred E. Zampella School, PS #27, lead by their National Junior Honor Society officers took to the streets in a school wide walk-a-thon. The proceeds from this year’s walk were donated to Tomorrows Children’s Fund, an organization that provides a warm, healthy and loving environment for children in treatment and a full scope of services to relieve families’ emotional and financial stress. They walked to honor the memory of Parth Patel, an amazing 9 year old boy who was a loyal friend and a dedicated student at PS #27. Sadly, Parth lost his two year battle with Ewing’s Sarcoma on October 22, 2016, however, his legacy will live on forever at Alfred E. Zampella School!
Susan Garbe, the Administrative Director of Tomorrow’s Children’s Fund came to receive the donation. In addition to a walk-a-thon to raise money, students also participated in a canned food drive for the pantry at Tomorrows Children’s Fund.
