In an effort to continue our Bellmore-Merrick community outreach, the High School district and the Parent Center will continue our hurricane relief outreach efforts.
Through Friday, Nov. 16, between the hours of 3-6 p.m., members of the Bellmore-Merrick community will be able to come to the Brookside building and get items and supplies that they might need.
Some items available are water, batteries, canned goods, clothing, blankets, hats, gloves, socks, cleaning supplies, pet supplies, toys and many other assorted household items and necessities.
On Friday, items that were collected throughout the week at the district’s schools were brought to Brookside, and students separated items by category so families would have an easy time getting the things they needed. On Saturday, many families came to get clothing, food and charge up their electronics. There was also counselors on hand to speak with people that needed assistance.
The items are located at 1260 Meadowbrook Rd. in Merrick. For more information, call the Parent Center at 516-771-9346 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
