Displaying a strong sense of caring and compassion, the West Islip Students with HEARTT community group – accompanied by three parents and English teacher and group founder Virginia Scudder – traveled to New York City on Feb. 6 to donate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to the homeless and their pets.
“We called ourselves the PB & J Gang as we handed out over 200 sandwiches” said Scudder. “The kids learned a lesson of compassion and the struggles faced by many of the less fortunate.”
