Providing Comfort

Babylon Elementary School second-grade students in Marie Poelker’s class have been engaged in a community service project to benefit families experiencing a difficult time.

Over the past three months, the students worked to collect toiletry items for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in New Hyde Park. With the support of several parents and their teacher, the students packaged the items for delivery.

This is the seventh year Ms. Poelker has organized a similar initiative.
