South Woods Middle School Student Council members recently welcomed FDNY firefighters Christopher Berke and Giovanni Martinez, who stopped by the school to pick up hurricane relief supplies collected by the students during a recent drive. The supplies are being donated to the New York City Mayor’s Fund in support of those affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria in Houston, Florida, the Caribbean and Puerto Rico, respectively.    

Sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders at South Woods were each given an assignment by the school’s student council during the supply drive. Sixth-graders were asked to bring in baby supplies, while seventh- and eighth-graders collected first aid supplies and batteries, respectively.

Once again, South Woods students and staff rose to the occasion and remained true to the school’s ongoing pledge to help others in need through its South Woods CARES initiative of showing compassion, awareness, respect, empathy and service.
