Tri-County’s Farm Day 2009 was held October 28th at Serenity Hills Farm in Hunterdon County, through the generosity of a TCSF Trustee. As part of TCSF’s leadership development program, Farm Day gave over 150 students from elementary schools in Paterson, Clifton, and Passaic City the chance to experience nature first-hand through hayrides, pumpkin picking and other fall activities. The children also received instruction on how to groom and ride ponies and ended the day with a marshmallow roast over an open fire.
Farm Day helped TCSF recipients escape city life and take part in a hands-on learning experience outside of the classroom. The event also allowed TCSF staff, trustees and Friends of TCSF to meet and interact with some of the children who receive scholarships from TCSF.
Please join TCSF in making a difference in our local communities. A little effort from many people can change the world where we live. TCSF is breaking the cycle of poverty by affording education opportunity to economically disadvantaged students in northern New Jersey.
