Each year, the staff and students at the Eastern Suffolk BOCES Brookhaven Technical Center (BTC) in Bellport, engage in community service projects that assist and benefit their local school neighbors. Under the direction of Amy Roland, Student Assistance Counselor, and in conjunction with Burmax, a cosmetic distributor used by the Cosmetology program, the students and staff provide gifts, scarves, hats, and gloves for all the teenagers at HELP Suffolk in Bellport.

HELP Suffolk is a transitional housing facility for homeless families. It is the largest housing facility for the homeless on Long Island. Since its inception in 1990, HELP Suffolk has served over 4,000 families. Available services at HELP Suffolk are medical, employment, mental health, early childhood education, client case management, and after school programs.

Amy said, "The Burmax Company generously donated gift items and we did additional fundraising to collect items teens would have on their wish list."
