A Fantastic Finish for Floral Park’s Food Drive

Floral Park Memorial concluded its holiday food drive for Island Harvest on Dec. 9.
This is the fourth consecutive year that students, faculty and staff, under the direction of the student council and the social studies department, have participated in Island Harvest’s “Students Feeding Students Challenge.” This drive was an enormous success with more than 3,000 pounds of food items donated. In addition, more than $1,100 was raised through a faculty dress down day and a schoolwide Ugly Sweater Day that students, faculty and staff participated in on the final day of the drive.

Floral Park has placed second in this challenge for the past three years and hopes that the generosity of all those who contributed will again be recognized this year.
