Students at both Sachem High Schools kicked off the season of giving by collecting turkeys and Thanksgiving dinner sides to donate to families in need.
Students at Sachem High School East assembled 400 boxes to donate to Sachem families. Each box was hand-checked for the 24 items needed to make a complete Thanksgiving dinner. Any extra items were donated to the Town of Brookhaven and Suffolk Independent Living Organization’s food pantry.
At Sachem High School North, students collected more than $4,000 and over 200 turkeys. They were able to provide more than 225 Sachem families with a full Thanksgiving dinner, along with hundreds of families in surrounding neighborhoods.
The Sachem Central School District is thankful for the generous amount of donations received to make the Thanksgiving a little brighter for local families in need.
