Spirit of Giving

Sylvan Avenue Elementary School first-grader Hailey Brand exemplified the spirit of giving this holiday season by organizing a collection drive for the less fortunate.

Through the generosity of all donors, she was able to collect toys and gifts for those serviced through the Lighthouse Mission in Bellport. She wrapped and delivered the surprise just in time for the holiday season.

In recognition of her selfless act, Hailey was commended by Sylvan students and staff members and was presented with a “Caught Being Good” T-shirt.
