Garden City Middle School’s Miracle Club collected more than 40,000 lollipops for children with cancer and delivered them to NYU Langone Cancer Center for Kids in Mineola.
Years ago, a Garden City Middle School student was treated at the center and shared with other students that treatment can leave a bad taste in one’s mouth. Because of this, the cancer center likes to always have lollipops available for patients and students decided this would be the perfect item to collect for patients in need.
After two weeks of collecting, Mrs. Castoro’s class collected the most lollipops for one class, totaling 6,641. Overall, the Miracle Club’s whopping donation of more than 40,000 lollipops hopes to ease the treatment process for as many patients as possible.
