District Students and Faculty Demonstrate Generosity

Students pack food drive donations thumbnail178649

Hybrid learning and the COVID-19 pandemic did not hinder South Country faculty, PTA and students from generously donating food to assist those in need this Thanksgiving season.

At Bellport High School, the student council organized a food drive during the month of November and members successfully packed more than 30 large boxes for the Lighthouse Mission and for a number of individual district families. The student council also donated turkeys and hams, accompanied by individual donations from faculty and staff.

Student council adviser Ellen Hoffman said, “The student council has been really impressive in their drive to fill donation boxes as much as they can in a cohort setting. There are a lot of fresh new faces in our meetings and so many students want to help and be involved.”

Brookhaven Elementary School’s PTA also sponsored a schoolwide food drive for families in need of holiday treats. In order to support families and local businesses, community members supplemented donations with meals from Rudi’s Bar and Grill to be picked up by community families, school social worker Kate Coppola said.

Through the student council, Bellport Middle School also collected food throughout the month of November. Additionally, Verne W. Critz Elementary School donated 11 complete Thanksgiving meals to school families looking forward to celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday. The collection was sponsored by the PTA and staff.
