Students, staff and community members throughout the Malverne Union Free School District have been showing their support for Malverne Feeding Our Heroes.
The Facebook group, started by Maurice W. Downing Primary School teacher Bridget Jelovcic, is collecting money to donate food to hospitals and essential workers, as well as to others in need during this time.
MWD second graders have raised $214 by delivering plants to neighbors’ doorsteps in exchange for a donation to the cause. These specific funds were used to send food to the work staff at Atria in Lynbrook, and to purchase flowers for each of the 130 residents there who are not allowed visitors during this time.
