On Monday, Nov. 7, Valley Stream North High School’s Senior High Student Council sponsored a Volleyball Tournament in support of Building for America’s Bravest, a program of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The initiative builds Smart Homes for catastrophically injured service members returning home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Twenty-one junior and senior high school teams competed in this friendly sports challenge, and $1,000 was raised for the cause. A bake sale and raffle prizes were among other highlights at this meaningful event, which was won by Team Diversity. Andrew McClure, the director of marketing and development for the Steven Siller Foundation, attended and spoke with students.
