A group of Grade 10 student-athletes has teamed up off the field to give back and help the many people who are struggling during the coronavirus pandemic. Knowing that public purpose is enhanced through partnership, Yuto Abe '22 reached out to God's Love We Deliver, an organization that prepares and delivers nutritious, high-quality meals to people struggling with serious illnesses in New York City, Westchester, and Nassau Counties, and parts of New Jersey. After working with the organization to understand its needs, Yuto created the fundraising team Wildcats Paving the Way! with Hudson Friedman '22, Ellie Stevens '22, Diego Morales Ciriaco '22, Jack Merrill '22, and Peter Nicholas '22. To date, they have raised nearly $3,000, funding more than 275 meals for God's Love We Deliver clients.
Commenting on this student-led effort, Director of Public Purpose Rebecca Drago shared, "These students have been thoughtful about the ways they approached the project, asking questions when they have them but ultimately leading the way on supporting this organization. I am proud that these students took such initiative during a time of need!"
