Spotlight On: Walk for Water & Island Harvest
250 amazing third graders from Jackson Avenue School in Mineola, NY carried a gallon of water a mile to learn what other children have to endure for just a bit of clean water. They donated the water to Island Harvest Food Bank, as part of Feeding America. We then followed the donated water to the first of many, many stops to people in need at the Hempstead Senior Community Center and spoke to the seniors there about what the water means to them. The water will also be divided among shelters, those living outside, veterans, and children’s agencies in Long Island.
