Moriches, NY - May 27, 2014 - Members of the Student Council at Moriches Elementary School in the William Floyd School District, recently spearheaded a clothing drive to support the Salvation Army Rehabilitation Center which has five locations in the Greater New York area. With the assistance of fellow students and their families, faculty and staff, the clothing drive resulted in 10 large boxes and 50 large bags of clothing to help those in need. Members of the Student Council also helped load the truck.

“I am so proud of all the things that the students accomplished this year in supporting our community,” said Kellie Megna, Moriches Elementary School Student Council advisor. “They really learned the meaning of giving back.” Other causes that the Moriches Elementary Student Council supported or participated in throughout the year included volunteering at the senior citizen’s dance, collecting toys for children during the holidays and various food drives throughout the year.
