Students at Forest Road Elementary School in Valley Stream 30 School District took initiative to help those in need by assembling dozens of bags filled with food and basic supplies.
Global Leaders of Tomorrow at Forest Road gathered in the gymnasium on March 31 to begin assembling the donations. The nonprofit One Love Outreach Mission facilitated the donation process and brought supplies of shampoos, toothbrushes, toothpaste, water, granola bars and more for students to place into drawstring bags. The bags, stuffed with essentials, will be distributed by One Love to families and individuals in need in Long Island and New York City.
Feeding those in need aligns with the Global Leaders of Tomorrow Advisory Council’s mission to work toward zero hunger in their community and beyond. All three schools in Valley Stream District 30 will continue to take action to fight hunger.
