Students at Clear Stream Avenue School in Valley Stream District 30 led the charge in collecting food for those in need as part of a districtwide effort.
Student representatives on the Global Leaders of Tomorrow Council have been working together to tackle zero hunger in their community. Their efforts have had a great start as members of the council at Clear Stream solicited the help of their classmates to collect food for the hungry. Cartier Burke, the sixth grade representative at Clear Stream, spearheaded the effort. They sent out flyers to encourage participation and visited classrooms to collect donations, including nonperishable foods. Once everything collected was sorted, the items were sent to the House of Hope food pantry in Valley Stream.
