Helping to Read and Feed

Main Photo
H.B. Thompson Middle School conducted two drives to improve the lives of others less fortunate during its annual Spirit Week celebration.  The HBT Book Club collected more than 1,000 new and gently used books for the not-for-profit Book Fairies organization, based in Freeport, NY. Book Fairies distributes books and other reading materials to children and adults throughout the metropolitan area, providing a respite from personal struggles and nurturing a love of reading across age groups.
Additionally, the HBT Student Council held a food drive to benefit Island Harvest, Long Island’s largest hunger relief organization. More than 800 non-perishable items were collected to help feed those in need.
Students earned extra Spirit Week points for their contributions. Great job by all of the students, their families and school staff members for once again showing that Thompson is a community of caring!
