Other Ways to Help
My mother, a reading teacher in our district, is collecting new children's books. Her school is on the water and the area was the most affected. The children lost everything. The school was ok, but did not have power for a long time. If you would like to send a new or almost new book to her you can at:
Harding Ave. Elementary School
2 Harding Ave.
Lindenhurst, NY 11757
You may also email Amazon.com giftcertificates to email@example.com . Thank you!!!
*Any extra books will be donated to neighboring areas affected.
You can donate directly to help Lindenhurst through Camp Bulldog! Click here.

Everyone helping out after the hurricane:
Supplies collected by the Lindenhurst Teacher's Union, Lindenhurst residents, and the Lindenhurst Fire Department.
A few parents helped organize a "Trunk or Treating" event around a local park. We wanted to make up Halloween to the kiddos who did not get a chance to trick or treat. It was so much fun and I am so glad I went and was able to bring a smile to children's faces.
This little cutie was in love with Sophie!
Thanks for all the love and support! I really appreciate all of you. Hugs!!!
