The Cold Spring Harbor School District encourages students at all grade levels to be mindful of the needs of others and to participate in community service projects as a way of giving back to the community.
The Thanksgiving holiday was a perfect opportunity for students to work together to ensure families have food to share and celebrate together.
At Cold Spring Harbor Jr./Sr. High School, Elana Axelrod and Dr. Beth Chase spearheaded the Social Action Club’s Thanksgiving Food Drive. The high school Spanish Club collected nonperishable Hispanic foods in a Canasta Familiar (family basket) to donate, and Señora Coniglio and Señora Segura are very proud of the tremendous effort the students put into this food collection. West Side Elementary School Kids Care, Lloyd Harbor Elementary School Student Council and Goosehill Primary School students and families all banded together to organize countless donations of pantry goods as well as $1 donations to purchase turkeys.
Several groups were the beneficiaries of their combined efforts and generosity with most of the donations being delivered to the Helping Hands Rescue Mission in Huntington. They were very appreciative as they now will be able to feed many more families in need with the generous donations from the Cold Spring Harbor schools and community.
