The Builders Club from Copiague Middle School wanted to spread some joy this holiday season. They decided to make holiday cards to thank the essential workers in their lives. As the members hand-delivered their cards, along with a candy cane, they were excited to reconnect with their neighborhood and community service workers.

Through their efforts may be conducted a bit differently this year, the members of the Builders Club at Copiague Middle School, along with adviser Maria Ostrofsky, have been hard at work to help those in their community during the holiday season. The Builders Club held a toy drive to benefit the John Theissen Children’s Foundation. The team collected seven bags of toys to help children in need throughout Long Island. The club also held its annual holiday food drive and all donations were made to the Copiague Eagle’s Harvest food pantry at Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School, which benefits students, their families and the local community.

To help ensure Copiague residents were well stocked in time for Thanksgiving and the holiday break, the Copiague School District community came together to distribute produce, grocery bags, lunches and turkeys.

On Nov. 21, members of the school district community – including administrators, staff, board of education members and faculty– distributed the items throughout the morning at Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School.

It was a truly a team effort by members of the Copiague School District, thanks to donations from the school community and Island Harvest. The Eagle’s Nest food pantry held a food drive and collected donations for Thanksgiving dinners that totaled 264 grocery bags filled with holiday staples. Island Harvest donated fresh produce that amounted to 400 pounds of goods. In addition to the produce items, Island Harvest also contributed 344 grocery boxes.

Thanks to monetary donations received by the school community for the food pantry and Island Harvest, 163 turkeys were also distributed. The Copiague School District’s food service program prepared, donated and distributed 1,611 individual lunches.
