In an effort to help give back to the community, Ward Melville High School students Jean Chung, Neil Mehta, Riya Sangwan, Claire Yang and Mikaeel Zohair recently delivered more than 1,200 hygiene supplies to the Welcome Friends Soup Kitchen of Greater Port Jefferson.
The volunteer project, Mission: Toothbrush, was spearheaded by Mikaeel and involved several donation drives held within the Three Village Central School District during the past year. The goal of the initiative was to promote the importance of dental hygiene by providing people who lack the ability to obtain dental and other hygiene products with the necessary supplies. Items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, mouthwash, shaving cream and diapers will go directly to people in need in the area.
