An extraordinary display of giving shined bright at Wenonah Elementary School in the Sachem Central School District as students across grade levels gathered numerous donations for members of the United States military stationed overseas as part of a campaign sponsored by New York State Sen. Monica Martinez.
The effort, led by several fifth grade students, accumulated 502 letters for soldiers and 817 food and personal hygiene items. As the letter writing campaign persisted across the school building, students learned about deployed veterans and the sacrifices they make each day.
