After weeks of raising money and awareness for their efforts, Miller Avenue School Student Council members took a field trip to Stony Brook Children’s Hospital to deliver toys and smiles to the children there.
The students, who work with advisers, school psychologist Mary Anne Benz and second grade teacher Robert Korchma, raised money and purchased new toys to donate to the hospital. As many students and staff members saw their display in the corridor at the school, they in turn generously donated to the cause. The group was given a special tour of the new, state-of-the-art facilities at the children’s hospital.
