Together, Brookhaven Elementary Students Made a Difference

Brookhaven Elementary School students made a difference through participation in two holiday collections. 

During a candy buy-back fundraiser, students stockpiled their leftover Halloween candy in the school lobby to send to the troops overseas. In conjunction with Bach Grazina East End Orthodontics, who donated $1 dollar to the school for each pound collected, the students collected more than 100 pounds of candy. 

In addition, Brookhaven Elementary School students joined the districtwide Socks and Soaps Toiletry drive through the South Country Community Leadership Network. Toothpaste, toilet tissue, brushes and deodorant are some of the items  donated.
