Making A Difference

When John F. Kennedy Intermediate School teacher Angela Giannotti’s son John wanted to thank the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the school stepped up in a big way for both the young boy and the organization.

John was granted a wish through the foundation and decided he wanted to give back and help Make-A-Wish children like himself who are in need of emotional support. He created a toy drive and enlisted the help of the JFK educational community, who hosted the event. Students, families and staff spread the message and through a variety of donation drives collected an enormous amount of gifts to be shared with ill children.

To thank John and JFK for their tremendous efforts, Make-A-Wish representatives visited the school to present them with congratulatory plaques.
