NEW HAVEN - Albertus Magnus School of New Dimensions has donated swimsuits to New Haven Home Recovery, Inc. after a two week long drive to help the agency’s Services, Education & Activities Reaching Children who are Homeless program, according to a statement.
SEARCH offers homework help, story time and activities to learn about physical awareness for children living in Home Recovery’s shelters, the statement said.
"During the summer kids participate in various field trips that require bathing suits that children facing homelessness do not have," the statement said.
The program is funded entirely by private contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations, the statement said.
Students and staff responded to emails sent out by Jeffery Janosko, director of Operations at Albertus Magnus School of New Dimensions, the statememtn said.
The school hopes to put on a larger drive next year for NHHR.
“The School of New Dimensions is always happy to help and looks forward to future opportunities to help our neighbors in need,” Janosko said in the statement.
In the past year, NHHR has helped 657 children in various services provided by the organization, the statememt said.
