In an effort to raise funds to support local families who are in need of assistance after Hurricane Sandy, Lynbrook students at Marion Street School have embarked on a project called Caps for Caring.
Beginning on Friday, Nov. 30, students and staff wore hats to school on four consecutive Fridays, donating money on each day that they sported a hat. With one week left in the campaign, the school had almost reached its goal to raise $1,000.
“This project ties in with our school theme of caring for the month of December,” said Principal Theresa Macchia. “The recent storm-related events have brought the idea of caring close to home this year for many of our students and staff.”
