Gifting Birthday Fun

Blue Point Elementary School fourth- and fifth-grade peer leaders helped to make birthdays brighter for others through a Birthday in a Bag Drive.

With the help of their family and friends, the students collected many of the items commonly found at a party, including cake mix, paper goods and even favors.  The group sorted the donations received and boxed them by category. The completed boxes were given to Long Island Cares, which will distribute them to families in need.
