(North Bergen, NJ—December 19, 2014) The High Tech National Honor Society (NHS), moderated by veteran Language Arts teacher and Department Liaison Joan Marie Bellotti, recently sponsored a drive to support the York Street Project, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech High School.
Students in all of the homerooms at High Tech donated items such as toiletries, bathroom and facial tissues, paper towels, adhesive bandages, stationery items, batteries, and garbage bags, which NHS members boxed. NHS president Tyler Law, a resident of Bayonne, and his mother, Lori Ann Law, delivered the boxed goods to Kenmare High School in Jersey City for distribution to all of the York Street Project facilities.
In addition to the NHS president, the following NHS students helped and boxed items: Alexandra Altamura and Koby Garcia of West New York; Bayonne residents Ida Behreini and Taylor Turzycki; and Nisarg Shah of North Bergen.
Weaving innovative programs that shelter, feed, educate, and promote the healing and independence of people in need, especially women and their children, the York Street Project works in four interrelated, coordinated, yet separate, programs at the Nurturing Place, St. Joseph’s Home, St. Mary’s Residence, and the aforementioned Kenmare High School.
