EDISON, NJ -- Students in all divisions from The Wardlaw+Hartridge School in Edison have continued making a difference by helping others during the COVID-19 crisis. 

From the Upper School, sophomore Shankari Theivanayagam of Summit started a GoFundMe page to raise funds to provide essential groceries to families who are severely affected during this crisis. So far she has “adopted” three families in Summit and has been delivering essential groceries on a weekly basis. She will also be providing canned goods to the local food bank in Summit. 

Representing the W+H Middle and Lower Schools, sisters Sarah Alves and Leah Alves of Springfield have been making sandwiches for donation to homeless shelters.
