"We were thrilled to receive this generous donation," said Rachel Yaroschuk, a Bridging the Gap social worker from the Bronx. "Out of all NYC schools, we have one of the highest numbers of students in temporary housing. Most of these students live in shelters or are doubled-up with other families. Students are proud and showing off their new winter coats!"
