PATERSON, NJ- Students, staff, families and supporters of ILearn Schools, the charter management organization (CMO) that operates the Paterson Arts and Science Charter School, got in the Thanksgiving spirit by collecting over $10000 and thousands of non-perishable food items to help families in need celebrate the holiday.

Through this effort over 500 turkeys and care packages were bought and distributed.

Additionally, ILearn hosted four Thanksgiving celebration dinners serving over 1500 guests over the course of two nights.
