‘Tis the season to share with others, as students in Island Park do throughout the school year. Student Council members from Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and Lincoln Orens Middle School took on an extra level of generosity in anticipation of the holidays by organizing toy drives that will bring gifts to those less fortunate.
Students, staff members, parents and local businesses donated brand new toys and winter necessities. The Student Council members and their advisers sorted and wrapped the gifts just in time to bring families in need some of the items on their wish lists.
