Scotchtown Avenue students donate $350 to Youth Ending Hunger Club

Students at Scotchtown Avenue Elementary School recently donated $350 to the Goshen Intermediate School Youth Ending Hunger Club. Their donation will help aid local families in need with food during the holiday season and throughout the year.

The students raised money by recycling cans and water bottles, under the direction of Speech/Language Pathologist Karen McDonnell, who also helps oversee the school’s Green Star Program, which promotes recycling and waste reduction throughout the building.

Scotchtown Avenue students Ayla Panzer and Rohan Fortugno-Harris presented a check to their older siblings, Zoe Panzer and Luther Fortugno-Harris, during a recent Youth Ending Hunger Club meeting.
