|PTA President Rasheeda White!|
Fashion Foundation founder, Amanda Munz, and host committee member Megan Melofchik spent the day with students at PSIS 155. The Foundation was able to donate an essential list of supplies for students, which included new uniforms, art supplies, notebooks and gym gear—basketballs, footballs and hula hoops!
Not only were our two important members of The Foundation front and center with the elementary students, but local Brooklyn charity “What About the Children” also graciously joined the fun and attended the day with Amanda and Megan. In addition, we were privileged with the opportunity to work with PTA president, Rasheeda White, who was a great help during all of the daytime festivities.
The Foundation hosted a painting party with the students, in which over 100 wooden picture frames were supplied for the children to present their projects in—a wonderful gift for the families during the Valentine’s Day season.
What most people don’t realize is that of the 535 students that attend PSIS 155, about 200 live in shelters. That’s about 37 percent of the class population. It’s a harsh reality such as this one that motivates The Fashion Foundation to help in any way that it can.
But it starts with you, the people who volunteer to donate and support our mission. A year ago, The Foundation was working on securing its third school partnership. Now, we are working towards an eighth. This would not be possible without those of you who help The Foundation grow each and every day. We thank you.
Special thanks to Brooklyn Charity “What About Children” and PTA president, Rasheeda White, for all for all of your help, and for teaming up with us to provide the students of PSIS 155 a day that they well deserved.

Till next time!
