June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month and to commemorate, Zachary Gosse’s School and Community Leadership class invited representatives from the Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center (ADRC) to provide pertinent education on the disease to the students at MAP.
The presentation was informative and was well received by the students. The School and Community Leadership class had raised funds through purple bracelet and purple ribbon sales, as well as through a Memory Garden which was planted in the front entrance of the Brookside School on Meadowbrook Road.
Two flats of annual flowers were donated to the class by Atlantic Nursery in Freeport. obin Marks, Executive Director & CEO, and Alexandra Bett, Care Consultant and Outreach Coordinator, of ADRC accepted the donation and sincerely thanked the students for their tremendous efforts.
ADRC is a grassroots organization whose main goal is to provide services to those families affected by Alzheimer’s and other Brain disorders throughout Long Island.
