The Syosset High School Peers Reaching Out club recently presented a check for $1771 to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6394. The money was raised through a fundraising breakfast conducted by PRO in conjunction with the school’s Peer Helpers and Student Government.
“Syosset High School recognizes the dedication of the VFW and is grateful and humbled by their service to our great nation,” said PRO adviser David Anderson.
Syosset High School staff, local veterans and students attended the breakfast held at the school in November in conjunction with Veteran’s Day.
Thanks to Woodbury Deli for donating food for the event; Syosset High School Student Government, which contributed money to purchase some food, and all of the students and staff who volunteered their time to prepare and serve the meal to our nation’s heroes. Many students came to school the night before to help set up the dining area to ensure a successful event.
