What did you do over the winter break? Some members of the Business Honor Society – which includes student athletes- at New Hyde Park Memorial High School used their vacation to help others.
On Feb. 23, eight students spent the day at the Mary Brennan Shelter in Hempstead. They helped prepare and sort food that serves up to 300 daily visitors, while others sorted through clothing and donations. “It was a wonderful experience” said senior Sarah Jivraj. “It felt good knowing that we helped others less fortunate than ourselves.”
