This year, students in Burns Avenue once again donated hats, mittens, and scarves to the Giving Tree during the holiday season. The Student Council coordinated the program and donated the gifts to Long Island Cares, a charitable organization that provides assistance to needy families on Long Island. All donations were greatly appreciated by the Student Council and by the families who will soon receive the clothing.
Thanks are offered to the Student Council for implementing this valuable program. Thanks are also extended to Mrs. Butler and Mrs. Homatas, the Student Council coordinators, for helping the Student Council to implement the program. Hopefully, students learned the importance of giving, particularly at this time of year.
