Midtown public schools flush with fundraising cash while others struggle
On Sept. 20, five per cent of all grocery sales was donated to the school’s garden project.
Dimitra Kappos, chair of the Brown Junior Public School parent council said the project consists of 80 to 100 milk crates filled with plants and vegetables, and expects to raise approximately $5,000 through the Whole Foods campaign.
“We have so many different initiatives that we have at the school, having somebody like Whole Foods step up … eases the burden on other fundraising that we do to actually focus on different things,” she said.
