Summit Council Presents Another Successful Farmingdale Jumps
The Farmingdale Community Summit Council presented the fourth annual Farmingdale Jumps basketball game on Feb. 6. The event featured the Harlem Wizards versus a team consisting of teachers and other employees from the Farmingdale School District. The event was sponsored by the Farmingdale Community Summit Council and The Farmingdale Council of PTAs. Proceeds from the event will be utilized by all three organizations to continue their programs to benefit our community. The PTA Council uses its share of the proceeds to help fund its scholarship program. The Community Summit is going to allocate its share to their Farmingdale Family Assistance Fund. The Summit uses this fund to help families in need who live within the Farmingdale School District. The Summit over the past few years has been using this fund to assist Farmingdale families with myriad needs.
