After several months of fundraising, Barnum Woods Elementary School officials plan to donate $18,500 to the Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School in Island Park, which was devastated by last October’s Hurricane Sandy. The majority of the funds were raised by Barnum Woods students, who amassed more than $13,000 by selling chocolate bars last spring.
