After seeing news reports of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy on Nassau County’s south shore, student government members of Ward Melville High School in the Three Village Central School District went into action, organizing a drive to collect more than 40 boxes of books, games and classroom supplies for Long Beach Public Schools. On Jan. 7, student government representatives boarded a bus with adviser Cristina Amato and assistant adviser Annette Goldberg and headed out to deliver the supplies in person.
“I grew up on the South Shore, so this project held a special place in my heart,” said Goldberg. “As soon as Sandy hit, we contacted Long Beach Schools to see what we could do to help.”
