Island Park students and staff members share their kindness and generosity each holiday season through annual toy drives, and their efforts have an even greater impact this year due to the challenges so many have faced in light of the pandemic.
Student Council members from Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and Lincoln Orens Middle School made it their mission to help provide gifts and essential items to needy families. Many staff members, parents, local businesses and other students contributed brand new toys, winter items and gift cards. The Student Council members and their advisers sorted the donations in hopes of bringing holiday cheer to the recipients.
