Thank You! The Middle School Youth Group and Youth Services would like to thank all of the students, teachers and families that donated goods to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Drive. As a result of your generous donations North Reading was able to donate 67 winter coats, 4 large bags of hats, gloves and scarves, 21 blankets, 3 boxes of food, and an entire bin of toiletries. The winter coats were donated to "New York Cares" who will donate 50,000 coats to Hurricane Sandy victims this winter. The other donations were brought to St. Margaret Mary Church in Staten Island where the community hub is located. It is going to be a long journey to rebuild over there and your gifts were very much appreciated by each organization.
A special thank you to the youth group students for putting in a great effort in calling organizations and making posters to build awareness. Nico Costa, Chadem Felix, James Garniss, Madden Warren, Megan Lawlor, Christina Lasdin, Brett Clarke, Tom Lasdin, Abby Andre, William Faulkner, Kylie Scher, Emilie Warren, and Rebecca Lee.
