The Island Park Public Schools are committed to paying it forward and helping others year-round, and Student Council members from Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and Lincoln Orens Middle School take extra care to promote kindness around the holidays. Both organizations spearheaded toy drives aimed to benefit those less fortunate.
The generous donations of brand new toys from students, staff members, parents and local businesses will provide many families with the gifts that are on their wish lists. They also include winter necessities for the cold months ahead.
The Student Council members and their advisors sorted out and wrapped the gifts just in time to bring an extra level of joy into the season.
