The Silas Wood School Based Management (SBM) team sponsored their "Share the Glove" initiative this past December.  Students and staff generously donated new or gently used gloves, mittens, hats, scarves, and socks for those less fortunate in our community.  All donations were given to the Helping Hands Rescue Mission.

Reverend Rosemarie Gaines, founder of the mission expressed to our 6th-graders that we are going to make many children very warm and happy this winter season.

Now celebrating their 50th year of community service, Reverend J.A. Gaines, his wife, Reverend Rosemarie Gaines, and her mother, Florence E. Meringola, founded the Mission in 1965.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to have served the Huntington, NY, community for over 50 years. Through various programs, and with the support of many wonderful people, we have been able to meet a variety of physical and spiritual needs within our local community.” - Reverend Rosemarie Gaines
