Levittown Schools Adopt-A-Family

Thursday, 02 January 2014 00:00

The generous spirit of the Levittown School District community rang true through the collection of hundreds of items for needy families during the district’s fifth annual Adopt-A-Family program. Under the direction of Gina Interdonato and Esta Lachow, more than 209 individuals will experience the season of giving, evidenced by the collection of toys, clothes and household items that packed the Board of Education meeting room at Levittown Memorial Education Center. On Dec. 16, Board of Education trustees, administrators, staff, students and community members gathered to wrap the gifts prior to distribution. 


“Because of the economy, so many families and individuals were in need of our services this year,” Ms. Lachow said. “We really had an outpouring of gifts this year, and they keep coming.”

Super Warriors Give Back

Thursday, 26 December 2013 00:00

Super Warriors is a program designed to bring smiles to children on Long Island who are battling medical conditions and illnesses, and to their siblings. We do this by creating “Warrior Gifts,” or baskets filled with toys for these children, in the hope that the special gift will brighten their day, show them that they are never alone on their medical journey, and that their community cares about them.


This year, fourth grade students in Mrs. Rachel Brody’s and Mrs. Condela’s classes sponsored two children and collected gifts for them for the holidays. The family came to visit Stokes Elementary School and the students presented them with their presents. They were excited to meet the kids and spread some holiday cheer.
