James Wilson Young Middle School students celebrated the spirit of the holiday season by participating in their school’s annual food drive, led by members of the student council and their advisors, Rob Donarummo and Ian Zambri.
In just one week, students collected food donations and King Kullen gift cards with a combined value of $200 to be donated to in Blue Point. The middle school student group effort will be appreciated by the families who receive prepared by church outreach.
Student Council President Victoria Barone said it's important to give back if circumstances allow.
"There are so many people in our own community who do not have enough,” she said. “We have an opportunity to do something to make a difference in their lives, at least for one day.”
