Babylon Elementary Students Help the Needy

For Babylon Elementary School students, the season for giving never ends as long as there is a need in the community.
Mrs. Poelker's second-grade class at the elementary school recently collected school supplies and toiletry items that will be donated to Haven House/Bridges, Inc. (HHB), a charitable organization that provides housing and support services to homeless families, single mothers and young children in need.
"The school supplies will help with the Haven House child care program," Mrs. Poelker said of the project. "Parents assisted in helping the children make flowers and write good wishes on hearts to package the items. This is the fourth year that we have been involved in this program. We're very pleased to be a part of this successful community service project."
