Forest Lake Elementary School Student Council worked diligently to develop a campaign to collect toys for Marine Toys for Tots. Under the direction of advisers Nicole Pataky and Meghan Prokesch, members created colorful signage announcing their collection and decorated boxes were placed in the lobby.
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a nonprofit fundraising and support organization for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Through their toy collection efforts, the student council members assisted the foundation in achieving their goal of distributing toys to less fortunate children in the Wantagh community.
