Student council members at Lynbrook South Middle School collected more than 400 toys for the Little Saint Nick Foundation during the holiday season. The foundation, which organizes programs across the country to help ease the fear, anxiety and isolation of sick kids both in and out of hospitals, was created by Ray Mohler, a former student at South Middle School.
Mohler visited the school to kickoff the toy drive in November. The student council hosts the toy drive each year to support the foundation and their mission, supplying toys for children in the hospitals during the holiday season and beyond.
“The students really did an amazing job and we are so proud of them,” said student council adviser Maureen McCartney.
