Thanksgiving Food Drive
The food drive and flag football event were a great success. We were able to send 15 baskets with turkeys to Birchwood families. We also sent 10 crates of food to the Stephen Olney food pantry as well as made a donation to the R.I. Food bank in the amount of 700 pounds of food. We can not thank you enough for your support of this drive and for your flexibility with today’s football games.

Alan Shawn Feinstein visited Birchwood Middle School on October 10, 2017 to discuss the importance of compassion and caring for those in need. He commended BMS students on the many important community service projects currently in place at Birchwood.
- Our faculty conducted a dress down day in support of the Hurricane relief efforts in Florida. They raised over one hundred dollars which was donated to the Red Cross.
- The students and staff of Birchwood Middle School dedicated the month of October to support the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation. Birchwood Middle School was able to raise $560.00!
- Student Government is collecting aluminum can tabs throughout the year for the Ronald McDonald House of Providence.
- Student Government collected colorful and character Band-Aids for The Tomorrow Fund during the month of October.
- Our school community conducted a Tech Tuesday lunch drive where students donated what monetary funds they could to a local family with a sudden death. Our students raised over $800.00 dollars which was then used to buy gift cards for the needs of the family.
- We are currently collecting non-perishable food items for our yearly Thanksgiving food drive.
Mr. Feinstein donated $1000.00 and Feinstein Junior Scholar Cards for all BMS students. The cards can be used for field trip admission to places such as
- Providence Children Museum
- Battle Ship Cove
- Mystic Aquarium
- Pawtucket Red Sox
“All that will matter to us someday is what we did while we were here to help those in need.”
