Port Richmond High School Gives Back With Food Drive
     For the first time in a very long time, we have finally stepped up our game in collecting canned and non-perishable foods to give to those in need. Our student government, Ms. DiAngelo, along with the Helping Hands Club, and Mr. Medugno organized the donations for people to pick up today in our teachers cafeteria. 2011 alumnus and community activist/philanthropist Ashley Troia teamed up with these Raiders to collect the food for today's distribution to be given out in time for Thanksgiving. It is an amazing honor that she asked Port to be part of this amazing project with her wonderful organization. A NY1 reporter also came to our school and interviewed Principal Gannon, Ashley, and the Student Council. The food drive was a great experience for all; Raiders became involved and we were able to give back to many people in our community. It's always important to appreciate what you have, and realize that there are many who do not have much, so start helping others!
