Bellport High School Student Council members worked fervently the week before the holiday break to fill more than 100 pre-wrapped shoeboxes with gifts for pre-K through senior students attending Little Flower Children’s Services of New York.
The student-elves collected the gift donations from generous teachers and students. The additional money collected during the organization’s Safe Halloween was used to purchase extra items and to provide holiday food baskets, which included a ham or turkey, for Bellport families in need.
