C. J. Hooker Middle School students recently collected 1,352 nonperishable food items during a school-wide food drive hosted by the members of the Leo Club.
Homerooms competed to collect the most items and the winners from each grade level receive treats from Dunkin’ Donuts.
The winning homerooms are:
- Grade 8 – Mr. Guarneiri’s homeroom
- Grade 7 – Tie between Ms. Nardone’s homeroom and Mrs. Caruso’s homeroom
- Grade 6 – Mrs. Monti’s homeroom, who collected the most food overall
The donations were sent to the Youth Ending Hunger Club at Goshen Intermediate School which benefits local families.
Members of Student Government aided in the food drive by helping the Leo Club members collect and count the food.
