The Glen Cove High School community recently came together to help those less fortunate by donating blessing bags filled with snacks and personal hygiene items.
Thanks to the generosity of Honor Society and Key Club members, as well as teachers, secretaries, the guidance department and the main office staff, the school filled 80 blessing bags, which were distributed to Glen Cove’s North Shore Sheltering Program, MOMMAS House in Glen Cove and Wantagh, and other in-need community members.
The school also received a donation of 25 string backpacks from Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, which were used to deliver the blessing bags to the Glen Cove’s North Shore Sheltering Program. Principal Antonio Santana expressed his gratitude to teacher and Key Club adviser MaryEllen Cuomo for coordinating the collection, and to all those who donated.
