Just in time for Thanksgiving, Rye Neck High School students donated food to local families in need.
Members of the Rye Neck H.S. Student Senate held their annual food drive from Nov. 6 through last Friday, Nov. 17.
They collected more than 4,000 nonperishable food items and donated them to the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Food Pantry, which assists area families in need.
“In addition to assisting people in our immediate community, our annual food drive teaches students the value of giving to others and helping the less fortunate,” said Karen Parisi, a social studies teacher and Student Senate faculty adviser.
The food drive was part of the students’ community service efforts for the month of November.
