Students across the Riverhead Central School District are doing their part to assist those affected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
At Aquebogue Elementary School, students have been collecting nonperishable goods including bottled water, baby wipes, diapers, canned foods, new clothing and blankets. The drive is being coordinated with the assistance of the PTO.
Meanwhile, Pulaski Street sixth-grade teacher Colleen Nizza kicked off a collection drive with her students. All of the donations received will be shipped to Texas as part of the Helping Makes You Happy Foundation.
Roanoke Elementary school students raised $200 through a car wash that they held at their school. The money they raised will be used to purchase school supplies for Ripley House Charter School in Houston. The school was damaged during Hurricane Harvey.
First-graders at Riley Avenue have also commenced a fundraiser. They are working on creating a class book that they will be selling for $1 each. The money they raise will be donated to the Red Cross Relief Fund. #ThisisRiverhead
