Mepham High School's French and Italian honor societies continued their tradition of giving back to the community through a field trip to the Mary Brennan INN in Hempstead on April 7.  

Along with Italian Honor Society advisor Betsy Siegelaub, students devoted an entire day to assisting the staff and volunteers in their daily activities: sorting clothing donations; organizing food donations; serving hot lunch to 256 guests; cleaning the dining room after lunch.

Students were moved by the needs of many right here on Long Island.  
"We had the option to do anything for our field trip like see a movie or go out to make pizza, but I really like how we used that time to give back to the community and go to the INN," said Jessica Scalisi, one of the co-presidents of the Italian Honor Society.
