Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am contacting you regarding NECCS’ Rooftop Garden project.We are striving to make a difference by educating children about health, wellness and sustainability with an outdoor classroom that provides Pre-K to 4th grade students with the opportunity to grow while learning about gardening and nutrition.  


School gardens …

•Encourage healthy eating habits

•Encourage kids to try new fruits and vegetable

•Connect children to the environment                                                                            

•Prevent childhood obesity

•Promote physical activity

•Encourage new ways of learning

In order to start NECCS’ Rooftop Garden project, we need to raise $3,000.

The program includes…

  • 30 bags of Premium organic soil

  • Variety of Organic seeds

  • Planters

  • 5 large bags of mulch

  • Compost to help our garden grow

We need your help!

We accept both cash and kind donations. Please contact Manjari Kapoor at

or 973-732-3848 ext. 0512.

All donations due by April 7, 2017.

Thank you for your time and consideration.  I hope you will join our school fundraising efforts, by donating to our garden fund.  Donors who contribute $100 or more will have an Earth Box dedicated in their name!

Thank you,

Ms. Kapoor
