Helping Feed the Hungry

Looking to help make a difference in the world, Bayport-Blue Point National Honor Society recently sponsored a local food drive, which was called “The Food Drive to Stomp Out Bullying.” This event was held in collaboration with The Band Perry, Long Island Cares and My Country 96.1 FM in an effort in putting an end to hunger throughout Long Island.

As a result of the school community’s generosity, BBP collected a total of 539 pounds of nonperishable foods. The donated items were delivered to Long Island Cares, Long Island’s regional food bank. In addition to benefiting those in need, the food drive also helped to raise awareness about bullying in schools, as the school who donated the most food will win a special musical performance from The Band Perry and an important anti-bullying presentation by Kym Laub of HUGS, a human understanding and growth services company based out of Westhampton Beach.
