The Art Club at Grand Avenue Middle School in the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District has been busy decorating Thanksgiving bags for local families in need.
On Oct. 19, the students designed and decorated brown paper bags that will hold a holiday meal for a family. The meals are being prepared and donated by Runyon’s in Seaford.
“Knowing they are contributing to make someone else’s holiday special, the student-artists think of all the things they have to be thankful for as they have a great time drawing,” said teacher and club adviser Nick Giordano. “It also fosters individual creativity during our club time.”
