Third-grade students at Timber Point Elementary in East Islip participated in the school’s second annual Spread the Bread event, baking fragrant loaves of pumpkin, corn and banana bread with the help of teachers and parent volunteers for the benefit of needy Lindenhurst residents uprooted by Hurricane Sandy.

“As part of our November character education trait of citizenship, and to celebrate the season of Thanksgiving, we donated the breads to the Lindenhurst community as part of the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts,” said Timber Point teacher Christine Vaglica.
