Extending a Helping Hand

The second-grade students in Marie Poelker's class at Babylon Elementary School completed a community service project to benefit Haven House Bridges, a support shelter in Brentwood for families in transition. With the help of Mrs. Poelker and several parent volunteers, the students created 75 supply bags filled with travel-sized toiletry items and notes of support and caring for individuals living at the facility. This is the fifth year Mrs. Poelker has coordinated this effort.
