Rhame Avenue School’s student council members, which include student athletes, collected left over Halloween candy from family members and neighbors on Nov. 1-4 to donate to soldiers serving in the armed forces.
Led by advisers Ashley Donovan and Jack Bixhorn, students created posters promoting the collection. They also collected candy donations from classmates and staff, decorated the collection boxes and sorted the candy for shipping. The candy collected will be given to the East Rockaway Ladies Auxiliary of the American Legion for distribution.
