Roosevelt Middle School Donates Food to Mayor's Sunshine Fund

WEST ORANGE, NJ - Seventh-grade students in Jay Wecht's class at Roosevelt Middle School were pleased to greet Mayor Robert Parisi on Nov. 21 as they boxed up their donations to the Mayor's Sunshine Fund.


The Mayor's Sunshine Fund provides Thanksgiving Baskets to needy families in the West Orange Community, and West Orange Schools have long-participated by providing non-perishable food for the fund. Over 100 baskets were donated this year to local families, and items remaining from the Mayor's Sunshine Fund were donated to Holy Trinity-West Orange Food Pantry. 



Students with RMS Principal Lionel Hush, Mayor Robert Parisi, Asst. Principal Marc Lawrence, Jay Wecht, and his seventh-grade class.
