The Lynbrook High School football and soccer teams presented donations to Camp Anchor and the Ryan Patrick O’Shea Foundation, respectively, during the Dec. 13 board of education meeting.
The teams hosted charitable games to raise funds for their cause. Teammates and coaches gathered at Lynbrook High School during the meeting to present checks to the organizations’ representatives. Football athletes supported Camp Anchor, which is a year-round program that assists individuals with disabilities and aims to socialize them with the broader community.
Both boys and girls soccer teams at the varsity and junior varsity levels raised funds for the Ryan Patrick O’Shea Foundation through a week of benefit games, during which they wore special jerseys that featured the foundation’s logo. The Ryan Patrick O’Shea Foundation is a mental health and suicide prevention-driven organization that outreaches to students to give them help, hope and strength. In Lynbrook schools, the foundation works to educate and empower students through the Sources of Strength Program, a national suicide prevention program based in social and emotional learning.
Lynbrook athletes were thrilled to support members of their community and proud to present their fundraising efforts to their respective recipients.
