East Islip High’s National Honor Society held a successful food drive at two local supermarkets on November 20. Over 100 bags of groceries were collected by NHS members – led by team leaders Kailani Acosta, Shawn Cummings, Dylan Kruger, Matthew Moore, Nicholas Pandolfo and James Reed – and delivered to a local charity for distribution to needy families during the upcoming holiday season.
NHS advisor Lisa Neri quickly had the students mobilized and hard at work on their next charitable project, the annual district-wide coat drive, which ran through December 9. “All coats were contributed by school district students and residents, and donated to local Long Island families in need,” explained Neri. Over 400 coats were collected for distribution by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
