The Bayport-Blue Point High School staff and students are working to ease the pain felt by the surrounding community as a result of the recent hurricane. On Wednesday, Nov. 14 and Thursday, Nov. 15, interested parties are invited to drop off donations at the high school dance gym between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. Some of the most sought after donations include: bottled water, blankets, towels, batteries, diapers, warm gloves, canned goods, garbage bags, gift cards, pet food, school supplies and plastic containers.
High school students are invited to volunteer at the drop-off site during their lunch periods and after school. On the drop-off dates, the school has asked students and staff to wear the designated color of gold to show support for the relief effort. Each class has been asked to focus on donating certain items, in addition to gift cards. The requested items are the following:
Seniors: diapers, baby wipes, food
Juniors: towels, blankets
Sophomores: water, batteries
Freshman: dog/cat food, cleaning supplies
*Gift cards (Home Depot, Lowes, Home Goods, Target, Walmart, Stop-n-Shop, Mastercard/Visa gift cards, CVS), general school supplies, and monetary donations will be collected from all grades.
Along with the supply collection, the students in the iLead program will be holding a fundraiser in which students can donate $1 or $2 to have their hand print added to a canvas that will be donated to a school in need in Lindenhurst. The proceeds will be utilized to buy gift cards for the more than 200 families displaced and the canvas will be displayed in their school.
Thank you for all of your continued support.
