Grafton Street School kids to receive aide from community groups

Posted by Jeremy Shulkin

Grafton Street School kids whose backpacks, clothes and shoes were confiscated by environmental/hazard workers will be getting replacement items thanks to Holy Cross, Friendly House, the Grafton Hill Business Association, Partnership for the Advancement of Learning, school committee member Dianna Biancheria and Kate Toomey’s Set for Success program.

According to a statement on Toomey’s Facebook page, Holy Cross’ Kathy Robertson says, “The College of the Holy Cross has made a commitment to help offset the costs to the Worcester Public Schools and to students and families affected by recent events at Grafton Street School. Holy Cross will work with the Worcester Public Schools and Friendly House, which is administering funds to replace clothing, school supplies and even household goods disposed of or damaged during the mercury-testing and clean-up process.”

No specifics yet on how the reimbursements will work. We’ll update with more info later.

  1. And we’re supposed to be impressed?

    Why doesn’t HC just cough-up a couple million for PILOT instead of embarrassing itself with this obviously superficial attempt at garnering publicity?
