The High School’s Eagle Food Pantry recently received a major boost in donations thanks to the efforts of the Shared Decision-Making Committee and the Student Council at Hauppauge Middle School. The groups teamed up for a March Madness project aimed at collecting non-perishable food items to support the pantry’s mission of providing food assistance to those in need in the community.
The project was a huge success, with students and staff members bringing in a wide variety of canned goods, boxed meals, and other essential food items. The donations were collected over the course of several weeks, with donation bins set up throughout the school for easy drop-off.
Thanks to the hard work and dedication of all involved, the High School’s Eagle Food Pantry was able to receive a large donation of much-needed items, which will go a long way in supporting the pantry’s efforts to feed those in need in the community. This project is a wonderful example of how a community can come together to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
Special thanks to Lena DeLuca and Sue Mimnaugh, Student Council Advisors, and Jenn Saltzmann, Member of the SDM Committee.
