Students at IS 228, the David A Boody School, showed off their holiday spirit by collecting gifts and food for the Marine’s Toys for Tots program and the Girls Scout’s Troop 2717 food drive for the Salt and Sea Mission in Coney Island.
Principal Dominick D’Angelo and the P.T.A. — led by president Heather Fiorica and treasurer Linda Dalton — encouraged the students to embrace Boody’s melting pot.
“Our P.T.A. decorates our Parent Engagement Center each year to celebrate, Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa, showcasing the school’s diversity and co-sponsors the drives to re-stock the shelves at the mission,” explained Standing O pal Heather.
Parents and children collected new toys for the Marines to deliver to deserving children in the community, in addition to canned and boxed food items for the homeless shelter. Standing O thanks these big-hearted holiday heroes.
