Spreading Holiday Cheer


Adult Learning Center students collect toys for children fighting terminal illnesses

Students at the Great Neck Public Schools Adult Learning Center organize a donation drive for a local charity each holiday season.

This year, participants collected unwrapped toys for patients at Cohen Children’s Hospital to support the Child Life and Creative Art Therapies Program for little ones fighting terminal illnesses.
