Members of the Lynbrook High School National Honor Society recently celebrated the season of giving with a toy, craft and game drive to support the pediatric department and pediatric critical care unit at NYU Langone Hospital – Long Island. The students, along with NHS adviser Leonard Bruno, collected 10 boxes of new toys, crafts and games for children at the hospital to enjoy.
National Honor Society President Ashley Roth, Vice-President Camilla Bahri, Secretaries Samantha Shea and Ambiya Hussain and Treasurer Carl Zou stopped by the homes of their fellow NHS members to collect donations from doorsteps. This resulted in a car trunk full of toys to make the holiday brighter for these young patients.
“I am so happy with the turnout of our toy collection and I am so thankful that the pediatric departments will be able to enjoy all of our donations for the holidays,” said Roth.
