Mineola Middle School sixth grader Justin Spera was recently recognized by Nassau County Executive Laura Curran and the county office for his dedication and service to the community. For three years in a row, Justin was responsible for coordinating a pajama drive at his school to support the Ashley Wade Foundation and Jake’s Jammies. As a result of the drive this year, 188 sets of pajamas were donated.
