NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Students from the Upper and Lower Schools of Iona Preparatory joined together to deliver three busloads of perishable and non-perishable items to St. Charles Boromeo, St. Mark’s in Harlem, and local food pantries. Part of the offering included a generous donation by Mark D’Urso, class of ’80, formerly of Key Foods, who gave $2K to help purchase items including 40 turkeys, 150 lbs. of potatoes, 150 lbs. of onions, and 100 lbs. of rice. Sean D’Alfonso and Brother Lucian headed up the efforts at the Upper and Lower Schools, respectively. This is one of many community service projects that the students take on throughout the year, using their time and talent for the greater good of our communities.
