East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School students hosted a Breakfast with Santa, which included arts and crafts and holiday music for the children of the community.
The fundraising event benefited the family of East Rockaway custodian Alex Loveras, who recently experienced a fire in their home. In addition to the breakfast, the physical education department sponsored a dodgeball tournament to benefit the family. Raffle prizes were donated by many members of the community and coordinated by the PTA.
The little village of East Rockaway with its big heart showed again the power of love and hope. In all, $1,700 was raised to make the holiday season a little brighter for the Loveras family.
