Kiwanis Kids and Student Council clubs at both Rhame Avenue and Centre Avenue elementary schools of the East Rockaway School District brought holiday cheer to Nassau University Medical Center.
After hosting a monthlong toy drive, club members visited the center to donate toys to its patients. Students were assisted by their parents, faculty advisers and teachers, including Danielle Schaetzle, Dawn McCabe, Julia Garvey, Sherina Lugo and Rayana Angelillo.
They finished the trip with a holiday singalong in the lobby of the hospital. Toys were purchased through a generous donation from the East Rockaway Kiwanis Club.
