The Long Beach Middle School Project Peace Club and National Junior Honor Society joined forces to collect food for the Corey Cares fundraising initiative. Together, they collected nonperishable goods for the Long Beach food pantry.
Corey Cares is a nonprofit organization based in Oceanside that involves youth in food donation efforts. It was launched by a teen named Corey who wanted to provide support to Long Island residents in need.
Students and student athletes of Long Beach Middle School participate in community service projects such as this throughout the school year and continue to develop into caring, thoughtful citizens.
