Once the winds of super storm Sandy subsided, Port Washington community members reached out to help their neighbors. PWEF Board members were no exception. Although most had no power or heat themselves, they organized coat drives, donated clothing and school supplies and volunteered at a PWEF-sponsored after school program at the Port Library. Although these storms wreaked havoc on the school calendar, PWEF grants – 26 in all for 2012-2013 - are in place and moving forward as planned. Storm or no storm, the PWEF prevails for Port Schools!
