The Silas Wood School Based Management (SBM) team sponsored their "Share the Glove" initiative this past December and January. The Silas Wood community generously donated gloves, mittens, hats, scarves, and socks, and jackets to the Helping Hands Rescue Mission to help keep many of the less fortunate members of the South Huntington Community warm this winter season.

Reverend J.A. Gaines, his wife, Reverend Rosemarie Gaines, and her mother, Florence E. Meringola, founded the Rescue Mission in 1965.  Reverend Gaines has expressed many thanks for the continuous support from the wonderful people and programs in place in the South Huntington community for over 50 years.  Mrs. Gaines came to Silas to meet the team and collect the generous donations.
