The Art Club at Grand Avenue Middle School has been busy decorating Thanksgiving bags for local families in need.

On Oct. 18, the students designed and decorated brown paper bags that will hold a holiday meal for a family. The meals are being distributed by the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District’s Community Cupboard.

“Knowing they are contributing to make someone else's holiday special, the student-artists think of all the things they have to be thankful for as they have fun sharing their drawing skills with others,” said Grand Avenue art teacher and club adviser Nick Giordano. “It also fosters individual creativity and expression during our Art Club meetings.”
