Members of the National Junior High Society and Community Service Club from Accompsett Middle School in the Smithtown Central School District recently spent the day at their local supermarket collecting items for those in need.
The student-volunteers enlisted the help of their community to collect items for hurricane victims in Puerto Rico on Dec. 2 by spending the day outside their local Stop & Shop. The students collected more than 25 boxes full of toiletry items and food as well as paper goods. Some shoppers donated money, which allowed the student-volunteers to shop for different items needed to help fill the boxes.
