The new year began with a good cause in the Lynbrook School District, as a school-wide, student-run effort provided vital supplies to those in need.
Throughout December, the West End Elementary School student council sold dozens of green bracelets sporting Lynbrook’s #OwlProud motto. Using the funds collected, the students purchased goods that were listed as items of need for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, including necessities such as hygiene and cleaning supplies.
On Jan. 10, the student council met to assemble their donations, which filled up 10 baskets. The donations were taken to the Ronald McDonald House the same day.
