Student ambassadors from both Merrick Avenue and Grand Avenue middle schools continued their hard work for the districtwide Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service initiative.
As a district, students had collected school supplies and winter gear for local charities and local families over the past few months.
On Jan. 16, students from all over the district joined their efforts and delivered the donations to local charities. On Jan. 26, the middle school ambassadors delivered donations to the local elementary schools.
The elementary buildings from both Merrick and Bellmore were extremely grateful, and excited to hear about the work students put in.
“All in all, the MLK Day of Service was an outstanding event that provided valuable goods to those in need, and provided the students of the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District a priceless, lifelong lesson,” said Andrew Del Rosario, assistant principal at Grand Avenue.
