While it may seem too early to be thinking about the holidays, the students here at ACS in Perth Amboy, NJ are doing just that. They have taken on the role of being helpers to Saint Nicholas. Although his special day does not get here until December, donation of school supplies, books, and warm clothing items have been collected now so that they may reach the children of Ukraine that have been left parentless, homeless, or both, due to the continued war between Russia and Ukraine.
The Class of 2017 has taken on this effort as a class service project to coordinate the collection of these items to pass on to the Ukrainian American Youth Association. The U.A.Y.A. in turn will be sure that all donations make it in time for Saint Nicholas to make his deliveries of joy to the children. Hopefully, there will be many happy children when Saint Nicholas arrives in Ukraine with these wonderful gifts.
