From Our Donors
Amy Atlee, Director of Community Service at The Masters School, a private school in Dobbs Ferry, NY writes:
“On Fridays we hold a ‘jeans day,’ when the students pay a dollar for the privilege of wearing blue jeans to school for the day. The money raised is donated to a charity that the students and faculty select. Once again, I am pleased to enclose a check for Peaceful Tomorrows. We hope this donation will help your members, united by the loss of a loved one on 9/11, continue to turn their grief into action for peace.”
Thank you to all Master School students and faculty!
