Members of the Udall Road Middle School Student Council recently visited students at the Children's Center at United Cerebral Palsy Association of Greater Suffolk in Commack.
West Islip's students collected candy and treats to make special Easter baskets for each child enrolled in the Children's Center. During their visit, the group hand-delivered the askets to each student. This is the 28th year students from Udall have done this.
“This is such a lifetime experience. I look forward to coming every year," said Steven, a returning eighth grader. "There are some students I remember from the other years, and I look forward to visiting with them and seeing themworking in a classroom, like we do.”
Jillian, a sixth grader who visited the center for the first time, was grateful for the experience.
“I was a little nervous about what to expect," she said. "Once I got here and met everyone, I found that it was a very emotional and touching experience, in a good way. I am so glad I came.”
Sheri Glazer, Assistant Principal at the UCP Suffolk Children’s Center, thanked the Udall students for their continued support.
“We look forward to your visit every year," she said. "Your continued friendship and generosity really make a difference in the lives of our staff and students. Thank you for being so thoughtful.”
