In an effort to assist South Country residents in need, Bellport High School teachers Aimee Iuliucci and Kelly Scotti organized and led a Districtwide T-shirt fundraiser called South Country Strong to benefit the Lighthouse Mission. During the event, community residents, students and faculty bought 474 T-shirts, raising more than $2,000. The money was donated to Lighthouse Mission to replenish the food pantry for residents in the South Country community and surrounding areas, Ms. Scotti said.

Ms. Iuliucci and Ms. Scotti noted that local clothing company Hart + Sole Clothing donated their time designing the t-shirts. Hart + Sole has also volunteered in the past by designing clothing for the school store at Bellport High School, the high school staff and boys basketball team.

“The school community and District faculty really came together to help residents in need during this trying time,” Ms. Scotti said
