Can-gineering Event - "Teaming Up to Fight Hunger"

Big picture
On Tuesday, November 22nd, Manor School will hold our annual "Can-gineering" Event! Each year, staff and students team up to build structures out of donated non-perishable food items. This year's theme is "Teaming Up to Fight Hunger." We will also welcome Primetime 585 to help judge the final structures. Primetime 585 will distribute donated items through their outreach with the Rochester City School District. Your child's teacher will give more specific details about their class structure for the day. Look for upcoming Manor Messages to view the completed projects!

Toys for Tots Drive at Manor School

The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, an IRS recognized 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit charity, was established in 1991 at the behest of the Marine Corps to help run and support the Marine Toys for Tots Program. The Foundation raises funds, purchases toys, provides promotional and support materials, manages all funds raised and donated, solicits corporate support, educates the public, and handles day-to-day operations.


Presently, the Marine Toys for Tots Program distributes an average of 18 million toys to 7 million less fortunate children annually. In 2021, 68,887 toys were distributed throughout the Greater Rochester area.


This year's need is anticipated to be great. Please consider donating a new, unwrapped toy to the Marine Toys for Tots Campaign. A drop-box is located in the main lobby of Manor School. Thank you!
