Modell’s Sporting Goods is donating $5,000 worth of equipment to the Hoboken Charter School. A four-alarm fire caused heavy damage to the school's permanent location at 713 Washington St. on Sept. 6, displacing the roughly 200
kindergarten through eighth grade students.
The donations include soccer balls, basketballs, footballs, cones, bags and other equipment needed “to help get the school back on track and allow them to proceed with their normal day-to-day activities,” according to Modell’s announcement.
Modell’s planned to present the items to Principal Deirdra Grode and PE
Teacher Kevin Flynn during gym class on Friday, Sept 28 at 10:30 a.m. at
the new St. Anne’s location in Jersey City Heights.
