Photo caption: Students at Smithtown High School West in the Smithtown Central School District recently came together to help those affected by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. The students organized an “essential items” drive and collected baby formula, diapers, nonperishable foods, batteries, flashlights, first aid items and feminine hygiene products. Many of the school’s groups and clubs worked together to show a humanitarian spirit and help those in need. Some Spanish classes wrote messages of hope, empathy and encouragement. They also shared inspirational quotes and drawings to show their support.
