Under the guidance of Bellmore teachers Regina Harten and Jennifer Lucchetti, Shore Road’s fifth-grade student council raised $1,000 for Island Harvest during its Valentine’s Day Sale. Members collected coins in the cafeteria and sold stuffed animals and various Valentine’s Day-themed items to peers and staff.

Island Harvest representatives Barry Landsman and Linda Sotomayer also visited the students to thank them for their generosity and to educate the young philanthropists on the work being done by the organization. Landsman said the money will go to Island Harvest’s Backpack Feeding Program, which supplements meals on the weekends for children who depend on school breakfast and lunch during the week.
