‘Peter Pan’ Food Drive

Each class at Winthrop Avenue was encouraged this year to find ways to help the community. In conjunction with their recent presentation of “Peter Pan,” Stacey Reiner’s and Annie Craine’s third-grade combined classes decided to sponsor a food drive in conjunction with family performances of the play in March. 

Instead of collecting an admission ticket, the students asked the audience to donate a canned good for the price of admission. Through teamwork and synergy, the class collected 100 cans of food to be donated to the Bellmore-Merrick Community Cupboard, which serves more than 40 community families who depend on its services to keep food on the table.
