The holiday season holds a vast array of traditions, and a common one throughout the Island Park Public Schools and community is that of helping others. In an annual effort to share their holiday joy, Student Council members from Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and Lincoln Orens Middle School spearheaded toy drives aimed to benefit those less fortunate.
Thanks to the philanthropic spirits of the young leaders and the collaboration and generosity of students, staff members, parents and local businesses, many families will receive the gifts that are on their wish lists. Donations also include necessities that will make the winter months warmer for their recipients.
The Student Council members and their advisors have collected an assortment of brand new toys, which they will sort out and wrap in hopes of providing happy and memorable holiday seasons for those in need.
