PCTI Channels Giving Season with Extraordinary Food Drive Event

Students of Passaic County Technical Institute (PCTI) embraced the season of giving with the annual Food Drive event. The outreach initiative was spearheaded by Student Council/Interact and Performing Arts Dance students who inspired hundreds of donations from the entire PCTI family. Food was collected in participating homeroom classrooms as well as at the “Back to Broadway” recital and included the donations of students, faculty, and staff.

An amazing 4,601 pounds of nonperishable foods was collected and delivered to the Cumac Echo Food Bank in Paterson, New Jersey. Sincere thanks to those who made the event an extreme success!
