    Bellport Middle School's Thanksgiving Food Drive Sets New Record

    Bellport Middle School students completed the building's annual Thanksgiving Food Drive on Thursday, November 17th. The Middle School kicked off the collection with its second annual Harvest Festival on October 22nd. The students and staff collected food items to donate to the Lighthouse Mission Food Pantry over the duration of four weeks. The goal was to raise 3,000 food items. When this goal seemed out of reach, the community rallied to help the effort. Students organized a team to stand outside Cirillo's Market in Bellport Village to increase donations and that is exactly what they did. Members of the Student Council and Honor Society spearheaded the campaign and worked for six hours on Saturday, November 12th collecting food. Shortly after that, the Food Drive took off with food coming in from class after class. The success of this Thanksgiving Food Drive was supported by many of the staff members helping to cheerlead and coordinate the student's participation through contests and other incentives. Also aiding the cause was the Quicksilver and Bellport Breakaway Youth Soccer Teams. In the end, Bellport Middle School collected over 3,397 food items which will go directly to helping families in need throughout the South Country School District.

    Mr. Di Puma, the Bellport Middle School Student Council Advisor, was humbled by the collective efforts of the Bellport faculty, staff and students. He said that their continuous help and support is a reminder of what makes our community a very special place to learn, work and live and he wishes everyone a peaceful and Happy Thanksgiving!
