During this global pandemic, the Lynbrook community put the Lynbrook Public Schools’ “Community of Caring” theme into action as they opened their hearts to local families and to heroes on the frontline of the Coronavirus pandemic. The district organized a drive-by food and thank you card collection on April 3 and 6 in the Lynbrook High School parking lot. Students, staff and families showed their support while practicing social distancing by driving through the parking lot and dropping off their donated items into bins.
The thank you cards that were collected will be presented to healthcare workers and first responders who have been working diligently during this stressful time period. The nonperishable food items that were donated will be distributed to local families in need to provide them with some staples for the upcoming holiday.
“We just want everyone to know that although we are far apart, we are still united as one big Lynbrook Family,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Melissa Burak.
