Floral Park school community collects Thanksgiving donations for charity


The school community at John Lewis Childs School in Floral Park collected and is donating various items to Ronald McDonald House Charities for the Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 25.

The donation drive is being organized by the school’s student council. “The drive encourages students to visit the Kindness Tree in the main hallway that displays the needed items on paper leaves,” a statement released by the school district said. Students are also able to donate spare change as part of the Thanksgiving donation drive.

Members of the student council, along with advisor Julie Lafferty, are scheduled to donate the items to the Ronald McDonald House in New Hyde Park on Nov. 22.
