Due to outstanding student efforts, the Bayport-Blue Point High School community recently collected $1,901.78 to be donated to the GlobalGiving Foundation to assist victims of Hurricane Harvey and their recovery efforts. 

The effort was spearheaded by 11th-grade student Nikolai Dolan who was reminded of the affects that Superstorm Sandy had on the local community in 2012 after seeing footage of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas. Together, with the help of Bayport-Blue Point High School English teacher Stacie Pintar, the two brainstormed a plan to help those affected by the latest weather phenomenon. 

“Each day, after school, Nikolai would meet with me to count the money from the collection envelopes and to write announcements to encourage the community to continue to donate,” said Mrs. Pintar. “Prior to Open School Night, Nikolai recorded a phone message to go out to the parents in the community about our collection jar that evening. After just one week, $1, 901.78 was collected. I am very proud of Nikolai's determination to make a difference and am grateful to the members of the school community for their generosity."

According to their website, the GlobalGiving Foundation will provide relief to survivors in the form of emergency supplies like food, water and medicine in addition to long-term recovery assistance to help residents recover and rebuild. All donations will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts from this storm.
