THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVES

THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVES
Thank you to all the schools district-wide for sponsoring Thanksgiving food drives. The responses from our community were beyond generous, and we thank all the students, faculty, and families for your participation and donations to so many local families in need. These donations were distributed to the Helping Hand Rescue Mission in Huntington Station.
Jr./Sr. High: A special thanks to the coordinated efforts at the Jr/Sr high members by the Social Action Club (advisors, Beth Chase and Elana Axelrod), Student Government (advisor, Maria Segura and student leader Matt Wright), and Natural Helpers (advisor, Chris Homer). Dr. Chase noted, “It was wonderful to see our school community work together to coordinate much-needed food and supplies for our local families in need. In this season of gratitude and giving, it’s endearing to know that many local families will benefit from the generous donations made by our CSH students, staff and families.”
West Side: Thank you to our incredibly generous community! We are so grateful for the leadership of West Side Kids Care which helped students engage in this meaningful service learning by collecting non-perishable goods not only for the food drive, but also 103 pounds of Halloween candy for our Candy Drive, and monetary donations to purchase turkeys for families in need. Student Council advisor: Ms. Santoro-Goldberg and Ms. Ryan.
Lloyd Harbor: Thank you to the Student Council, who collected an abundance of food for the Helping Hands Mission in Huntington for Thanksgiving. The Lloyd Harbor families were very generous in donating plenty of items that were needed for these needy families for the Holiday Season. We would like to thank our community for all their support! Students Council advisors: Ms. Rampi and Ms. Cohen.
Goosehill: Thank you again to the GHPTG for organizing our Food Drive and everyone for helping to fill the boxes with everything a family will need for Thanksgiving dinner. All donations went to the Helping Hands Rescue Mission in order to support local people in need for the upcoming holidays. Much appreciation to our student council senior staff and a few other 6th grade volunteers for counting all of the food and monetary donations. This activity was an important one for our students, as it prompted discussions about gratitude and generosity.
