The spirit of community service continued in full force this past week as the generous members of the United Way teamed up with Huntington Coach and volunteers from People’s United Bank to donate a busload of school supplies for our South Huntington children. 

There was a special feeling of cooperation in the air at Stimson Middle School as officers of Student Government formed a human assembly line to unload the countless boxes of school bags, books, markers, writing tablets, pencils, pens, and more that filled the full-size bus. Stimson Principal Edwin Smith believes in the importance of providing these supplies, stating how “our students greatly need it, our teachers greatly need it, and it’s a wonderful opportunity for our community to come together.”

These materials were brought to South Huntington thanks to Huntington Coach, United Way, and People’s United Bank, and under the supervision of Mrs. Voorhees and Mrs. Schmitt, the 7th and 8th grade Student Government officers found a fun way to get these school supplies to students who really need it.
