GH Community Service Project

Students raised $1,000.00 dollars (in coins!) for Little Shelter as part of a SIT-sponsored community service project in support of our HERO theme - heroes are kind to people, animals and the planet Earth. (Hero stands for honesty, empathy, respect and open hearted.)

The First National Bank of Long Island waived the coin counting fee and added $250.00 to our donation! Representatives from Little Shelter, Arlene Leone and her dog, Buddy, received our donation of laundry detergent, cat and dog toys and food, as well as a check for the balance of the funds collected. President of The First National Bank of LI, Michael Vittorio and Branch Manager, Collen DeStefano presented a $250 check to Little Shelter on our behalf, and thanked the children for being true heroes in their community.

Way to go Goosehill!
