Students across eastern suburbs offer relief to victims of Sandy

Manlius Pebble Hill students recently collected urgently needed items for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Necessities were delivered to Laci’s Tapas Bar, the Syracuse restaurant whose owners are traveling to the New York City/New Jersey area with supplies. Shown making one of many deliveries to Laci’s are (from left) MPH seniors Jessie Glies, Christy Murphy and Jordan Olinsky, and 2012 MPH graduate James Gavigan, now a student at SUNY Geneseo.

Raising money for the American Red Cross is not only popular at Enders Road. Woodland Elementary School also raised money for the relief organization. On Nov. 9, they held “Jeans Day,” where staff members were allowed to wear jeans to school by making a donation.

Pine Grove Drama Club is also permitting certain types of dress in exchange for donations to the American Red Cross. Any student or staff that donates will get to wear a crazy hat to school on Crazy Hat Day.

Also, the cast of Pine Grove’s fall play is hosting a special raffle during the shows that will add to the cause. This year, the students will stage a pair of one-act comedies: “Imperfect Proposal” and “The Hunchback of Notre Dame Goes West.” Performances are at 7 p.m. Nov. 14 and 15 and tickets are $3. The cast and crew are also asking attendees to bring donations to be delivered by Monday, Nov. 19.

Those looking to donate to the relief efforts of the American Red Cross can do so by visiting redcross.org.
