Students and parents from Theunis Dey Elementary School collected and donated a dozen boxes of books and school supplies for the Little Ferry School District recently.
Little Ferry schools were severly damanged by Tropical Storm Sandy earlier this month. Some school buildings are still not being used. Students are taking classes in other buildings throughout the municipality.
The collection drive was a collaborative effort between the school's Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and school personnel.
"We're so happy we had the chance to donate some supplies but also to engage the students in assisting with the relief efforts. It is the season of giving and we're more than happy to help out other towns that were impacted by Sandy," said Robyne Rasa, president of the school's PTO. "It also teaches the kids a valuable lessen in giving and helping others."
