Wyandanch Union Free School District
Students in the Wyandanch School District were the beneficiaries of the generosity of 14-year-old Kinley Simmons. Kinley knows how important it is to have the right tools to succeed in school and using her own money purchased and donated 20 backpacks to the school district.
The backpacks will be distributed to students attending the Lafrancis Hardiman Elementary School once they are filled with school supplies generously donated by United Way of Long Island. UWLI donated 25 boxes of school supplies.
The Wyandanch School District thanks both Kinley Simmons and the United Way of Long Island for their generosity and donations.
