Commack Students Bringing Joy to Local Seniors
Challenge accepted! Patricia Tappin and Tara O’Grady’s fifth grade class at Mandracchia Sawmill Intermediate School in Commack was given the task to come up with a way to give back to the members of our community during this holiday season. The students, with the help of their families, decided to collect toiletries and create gift baskets for the residents of the Gurwin Jewish Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. The residents were overwhelmed with joy as they opened their gift bags to find specialty soaps, shampoos, hand creams, and other items to use to pamper themselves as they get ready for the day. The students were filled with pride knowing they were giving back to the local elderly community members to brighten their holidays.
