Each year, just before Thanksgiving, the students at the Great Neck Public Schools Adult Learning Center organize a donation drive for a local charity. This year, participants collected unwrapped toys for patients at the Cohen Children’s Hospital.

Members of the Adult Learning Center Student Council are shown here with some of the donations to support the Child Life and Creative Art Therapies Program for children fighting terminal illnesses.

Joining them are Board of Education President Barbara Berkowitz and Board Trustee Donna Peirez; Superintendent of Schools Dr. Teresa Prendergast; Director of Adult Education Dr. Errin Hatwood; Director of Human Resources Jennifer Kirby; Assistant Superintendent for Elementary Education Kelly Newman; and Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Education Dr. Stephen Lando.
