Omega Psi Phi Fraternity gave $1,500 to Van Duyn to help purchase holiday gifts for students who have earned perfect attendance. The school purchased 100 $15 gift cards to Five Below and will present them to the students who had perfect attendance for the first semester so they can pick out their own holiday gifts.
The Salvation Army generously donated toys to seven SCSD schools as holiday gifts – gifting 400-600 items PER SCHOOL. Van Duyn, STEAM at Dr. King, McKinley-Brighton, Porter, Seymour, Delaware and Oasis have all received toys.
