Students in East Islip High School’s French Club and Interact Club recently worked together on a “Stuff-A-Box” community service project, collecting enough winter necessities to provide 22 gifts for residents at the New Hope Rising Recovery and Wellness Center in Westhampton Beach. Each gift bag included a winter hat, gloves, socks, boxer shorts and a T-shirt.

“These gifts went directly to help a very underserved population of people in recovery,” said French teacher Lauren Pinka. “A special merci beaucoup from me to the two clubs and their members.”
