Deer Park Donates

The High School Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Club organized a schoolwide food drive to benefit local food pantries. Students advertised the event through posters and made daily announcements encouraging their peers to participate.

The drive was a success, with students collecting more than 600 pounds of food to be distributed to community organizations. To recognize students’ contributions, Town of Babylon Community Development Program Project Manager Florence Findley and Town of Babylon Human Services Deputy Commissioner Traci Fonville visited the school to accept the donation and present students and club advisor Janet Werner with certificates of appreciation. Officials thanked students for participating in the Global Youth Service program and described how their efforts will help support families within the community.
