Student council members at Marion Street Elementary School recently organized their annual toy drive to support the Children’s Heart Foundation and the children at South Nassau Communities Hospital. With the help of generous Marion Street families, the student council members delivered more than 300 toys on Dec. 10 to the hospital and performed holiday songs with chorus and band students in the hospital’s atrium.
Student council advisors Kelly Donovan and Colleen Kiss, along with library media specialist Marie Sarro-Pizarro, helped facilitate the toy drive from Nov. 25 through the drop off date. This was the third year that the student council ran the collection to give back to hospital-bound children during the holiday season. Great job, Marion Street!
