Last Thursday, Harlem’s Children Storefront held its first Dress Up Day, a day when the children dressed up in their finest to celebrate a special potluck lunch in their classrooms. Normally, the students have a Dress Down Day where the kids can step out of their uniforms and trade it for more comfortable attire, but with the holidays on hand the school decided to take a different route and show off their dress up gear to bring in the holidays in style.
Each class had its own potluck lunch where the kids brought in home-cooked dishes to share with classmates. All dressed up and ready to celebrate, the kids and teachers joined in to discuss etiquette tips and stories of which family member cooked what. The best part of The Children’s Storefront Dress Up Day was the kid’s participation in Red Rooster’s Holiday Food Drive. Each child participating in the Dress Up Day, apart from food to share in the class also brought in canned foods for families in need this holiday season. Those donations were then brought over to Red Rooster Harlem to be counted as donations for our food drive.
We’d to thank all the kids who brought in donations from The Children’s Storefront in Harlem. Your donations were a great help and we’re glad you all had fun in your Dress Up Day. Check out our photos below from their Dress Up Day and please help our food drive by reading here.Â
