OLBSCA Students Host Police Appreciation Day to Support Families of Fallen Officers

Our students hosted a Police Appreciation Day on Feb. 9 in honor of the New York City Police Department and slain NYPD Officers Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora. This special day featured a ceremony outside the school and a fundraiser.

For a $5 donation, students were able to dress in blue to show their support for the NYPD, with all donations going to the Rivera and Mora families. An anonymous donor matched all donations up to $1,000, and we have raised more than $6,400 so far!

City Councilwoman Vickie Paladino from District 19 attended the ceremony, as did members of the New York City Police Department and school families.
