On Nov. 26, 38 Floral Park Memorial students attended the Veterans Stand Down at the Freeport Armory for the second year in a row. Students were guides to homeless, disabled and disadvantaged U.S. service members. Each student supported their respective veteran in the collection of necessary items to help them through the winter months. The Floral Park Memorial student body collected toiletry items to be distributed, as they have done in the past. The joy brought to both the veterans and the students embodied the spirit of Thanksgiving.
