West End Student Council members from the Lynbrook Public Schools recently held a toy drive for families in need this holiday season and collected piles of new toys, games and craft sets. The donations will be delivered to Toys for Tots and to local families to make their holidays brighter.
With the help of student council advisers Heather LaBarbera and Melissa Kulikowsky, the fourth and fifth grade student council members rolled up their sleeves and wrapped the donated toys with gloves on in the school library. Due to the current health crisis, all of the donated toys were quarantined before being wrapped and donated. The student council members would like to thank the West End Elementary School community for their support and generosity this holiday season.
