This past December, the Student Advisory Council (S.A.C.) at Charles A. Reinhard Early Childhood Center in Bellmore held a “Purple Heart Pups” fundraiser. This fundraiser was established by the Merrick Lions Club to help disabled veterans lead successful and independent lives by raising the money needed to provide them with access to service dogs and other supportive programs. To help raise the funds, each student was given the opportunity to create star that would be featured on the “Stars for Heroes” wall for a donation of $1.

Through the donations, S.A.C. was able to raise more than $300, with proceeds going directly to America’s Vet Dogs and The National Amputation Foundation.
