Once again, the National Honor Societies of Newfield and Centereach High School sponsored their annual Stuff-A-Bus item drive. We achieved our goal of filling an entire school bus with food, clothing, and toys. We were able to fill the Selden-Centereach Youth Association Helping Hand Pantry well past capacity.
Between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., over 150 Middle Country High School students braved the cold, and canvassed the parking lot and stores of Selden Plaza. They requested donations from patrons, and witnessed the overwhelming generosity of the members of the Middle Country community. They then helped unload the items at the food pantry. This was a truly a collaborative event. We would like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude to Laura Michaels and the National Technical Honor Society, and Gene Moreno and his Leadership classes, for their participation in this worthy cause.
