Merrick first graders in Ilene Klein and Chris Wolf’s class at Levy Lakeside Elementary School are helping families in need this holiday season. The students recently donated non-perishable food items, such as canned vegetables, stuffing, cranberry sauce and paper goods to create Thanksgiving baskets to be distributed to families, based on information gathered by the school’s social worker. The class of 16 students also earned money by completing chores at home, which they then donated to the cause, raising more than $100 to benefit local families in need for Thanksgiving.
