Students from Stewart School in Garden City are putting smiles on children’s faces, thanks to a recent “Pretzels with a Purpose” fundraiser. On April 13, the profits from Pretzels with a Purpose were used to purchase supplies for Smile Bags.
Children from Mrs. Wills and Mrs. Scibelli’s classes worked with their peers to create bags full of goodies to donate to the NYU Langone Child Life Program in Mineola. Students organized age-appropriate bags, filling them with toys, arts and crafts, puzzles and books. Thanks to the generosity of Stewart School families, students were able to create 62 Smile Bags for the hospital.
Members of the Child Life team expressed their heartfelt appreciation upon receiving the donation. The District thanks its students and families for supporting such a meaningful service-learning program.
