Seaford Middle School Brings Joy to Sandy Victims

Students team up with a local deli to assist victims from Oct. 29 superstorm during holiday season.

The magic of the holiday season was in full force when Seaford Middle School’s Service Club and National Junior Honor Society, along with Sequa Delicatessen on Jerusalem Avenue, collaborated to help spread holiday cheer
to those families still affected by Superstorm Sandy.

Both faculty and students from Seaford Middle School graciously donated holiday trees, wreaths and candy canes while Sequa Deli contributed 100 cups of hot chocolate. More than 30 middle school students volunteered to deliver the trees, hot chocolate and candy canes to Seaford Harbor Elementary School, where they were disbursed to the

“Thanks to the generosity of our school community over 36 trees and seven
wreaths were donated on-site and 12 more trees were delivered the following day to individual homes in Seaford, Wantagh and Copiague,” said Seaford Middle School teacher Patty Gilroy, the service club advisor and organizer of the event. “It was a true community event that brought much-needed joy to all during this holiday season.”

We have seen such an amazing outpouring of genorosity from our Seaford family, and friends of our community. Well done!! Your efforts have touched many hearts. With regards to Felicia, the author, I believe the holiday that the trees are for is Christmas, therefor they are Christmas trees. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

There have been many times since the occurance of Sandy, that I have had the opportunity to feel warmth and pride with regard to the Seaford Community and its combined efforts. I have not however seen the impact of any of the events bring instantaneous smiles and holiday cheer to so many people the way the efforts of our Middle School students and teachers did with the hot cocoa, candy canes, trees and pure joy shared so selflessly! Heck...I think the "curbside service" was just unparalleled! This year has been one which many of us cannot wait to close out...but there are a few glimpses back that my minds eye will keep in good focus for so long to come...this event is one of the. Happy and healthy New Year to all...and may our recoveries be quick and filled with the comfort of knowing we are part of a great community!
