Washington Street School fifth graders made 275 lunches – complete with a sandwich, bag of chips and water bottle – for the Mary Brennan INN in Hempstead on Nov. 23.

The students brought in money for teacher Ryan Meliere to purchase the needed items for the lunches. Then, all the fifth-grade classes gathered in the cafeteria to make the sandwiches and put together the bags. Once the lunches were finished, Mr. Meliere delivered them to the INN.

The school’s fifth grade classes have participated in this pre-Thanksgiving act of kindness for 10 years.

Students throughout the building were invited to bring in quarters to vote for their favorite jack-o’-lantern. By the end of the week, the school raised $1,033 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
