Members of the Rocky Point School District varsity, junior varsity and middle school baseball teams recently volunteered at Maureen’s Haven, a shelter for people in need in Riverhead.
This annual event had student-athletes working together, along with coaches Anthony Anzalone and Eric Strovink, setting up beds, stocking the pantry, setting dinner tables, and packing lunches and snacks. When they finished setting up the location, they presented the director with 50 fast-food restaurant gift cards to give out to the people at the facility.
Additionally, the students collected and donated food items, packaged snacks, rain ponchos, gloves, winter hats, toothbrushes, lip balm and so much more so each person at the shelter can benefit from the kindness for weeks to come.
The Rocky Point School District thank the students who demonstrated their hard work and compassion with this heartwarming gesture.
