“RCCS GIVES… Just in Time for the Holidays!”

On Tuesday, Nov. 22nd Roseville Community Charter School hosted its 1st annual “Friendsgiving Potluck Dinner” for all RCCS families! Cost of admission was at least one (1) canned food item which would be included as part of our annual RCCS Thanksgiving Food Drive! We collected a total of 10 large boxes of canned foods which were donated to the Community Food Bank of NJ the next day! In addition, RCCS staff collected enough money to purchase 10Shop-Rite $50 gift cards that were raffled off to 10 of our RCCS families just in time for holiday grocery shopping! Our families and staff truly enjoyed this Thanksgiving holiday event as it was an opportunity for parents to volunteer at the school, work in collaboration with teachers on behalf of the community, and enjoy the fellowship that comes with breaking bread together! “I am proud of the community outreach that occurs consistently here at Roseville Community Charter School and especially during the holiday season! RCCS GIVES because we care about our community and it’s what makes our school so special!” ~ Dr. Ledford, RCCS Executive Director & Superintendent
