Collecting at PCS

In an ongoing project, PCS will be collecting Target gift cards of any amount for Unaccompanied Children (UACs) and teens coming from the southern border and receiving immigration legal services at the Neighbors Link Community Law Practice in Mt. Kisco. Children and teens need to purchase school supplies and clothing; the Neighbors Link model of empowerment is demonstrated by selecting their items and navigating the shopping experience. 

In addition, please drop off the following items at PCS: Sample-size personal care items such as shampoo, soap, razors, shaving cream, deodorant for homeless or and housing insecure immigrant day workers in Northern Westchester.
