ifth graders in Marsha McLeod’s class at James H. Boyd Intermediate School were eager to volunteer their time to wrap presents for a family in need this holiday season.
The students adopted a family earlier this year and wrapped approximately 45 gifts for the family’s 14-year-old boy, and 11-year-old and 7-year-old girls.
Each one of the presents were bought with money that the students earned through selling popcorn over the last several weeks. Students could also purchase raffle tickets for $1 to enter for a chance to win prizes. The proceeds from the raffle ticket sales were also used to purchase the presents.
Additionally, the students wrapped crayons and coloring books to be delivered to children at Huntington Hospital.
Students involved: Ryan Oliveri, Adam Siddiqui, Kieran Kenny, Livia Yeisley, Emma Kern, Laila Benardello, Gianna Viteritti, Kaylee Mossey, Brayan Molina Velasquez, Bella Ronai, Kasey Alfaro, Keira Faraci, Ginio Aguilar, Kasper Jasinski, Morgan Levy, Michelle Rubio, Reyna Blair, Denny Reyes, Katherine Mejia, Sam Ross, Mayriliz Ventura and Salvador Diaz.
