Second-grade students at Cherry Lane Elementary School put the “treat” in trick-or-treat this Halloween by donating a portion of their collected candy to the Interfaith Nutrition Network in Hempstead. The INN provides various services to Long Island families in need, including food, emergency shelter, long-term housing, veterans housing, supportive assistance and more.
“The students have been discussing character education and how to be more caring and helpful toward others,” said second-grade teacher Mary Donnelly. “The candy donation is just one example of a small act of kindness through which students can show their generosity.”
