Students from the Lindenhurst High School A.R.M.S. Club recently joined representatives from Legislator Kevin McCaffrey’s office and Village of Lindenhurst Mayor Michael Lavorata to be awarded Certificates of Recognition for their commitment to serving others in the Lindenhurst Union Free School District. Their efforts were responsible for the distribution of over 140 new backpacks filled with essential school supplies this past year.
The students sold raffle tickets for prizes that were donated, raising an additional $255 for a grand total of $2,405 that will be used to sustain the outreach effort of next year’s campaign.
Teacher and club organizer Danielle Bottachiari and club president Alana Downey were also presented with a check for $2,150 by Turtle Graphx sign fabricator/installer Tom Baumann.
