South Country Central School District
The Bellport High School Student Council hosted the annual Christmas in a Shoebox to benefit the South Country Central School District community’s young children.
Each year, the student council hosts a drive to collect gifts and toys for the impending holiday season. The members then gather to wrap the gifts in shoeboxes prior to being distributed throughout the community.
“This is our favorite activity for the community, and there is even more need during the pandemic,” adviser Ellen Hoffman said. “The student council really enjoys the opportunity to lift some of the burden. Everyone in the high school was so generous; faculty, staff and students really came through in this challenging time to help make the holidays happy.”
Bellport High School math teacher Amanda McCauley and social worker Ann Haddad also hosted a similar activity to benefit high school students this year. Faculty, staff and students were extremely generous with their donations of gifts that were included in gift boxes for secondary-level students struggling this holiday season.
