Mineola learners from throughout the district are showing true holiday spirit by spearheading toy drives to help brighten the holidays for those less fortunate in our community.
From the students at Mineola Middle School to the littlest learners at Meadow Drive and Jackson Avenue schools, students spearheaded successful toy collections for charities that ensure that all toys will benefit families right here on Long Island.
These initiatives not only benefit sick and underprivileged children but teach lasting lessons to our learners at all grade levels, including kindness, compassion and the importance of community service.
- Mineola Middle School collected 188 toys which will donated to two local charities, the John Theissen Children’s Foundation and Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.
- Students at Mineola’s Jackson Avenue School held a toy drive to benefit the John Theissen Children’s Foundation and collected five large bags of new toys.
- Students at Mineola’s Meadow Drive School filled five giant bags with toys for the John Theissen Children’s Foundation that will benefit sick and underprivileged Long Island children.
