The Syosset High School Peers Reaching Out club once again showed its appreciation to our country’s military men and women through its annual fundraising breakfast, held in conjunction with several other clubs at the school on Nov. 9. 

The sentiment embodying this year’s Veterans Day breakfast was "We don't know them ALL, but we owe them ALL." 

In addition to PRO, the high school Cooking Club, Interact, Virtual Enterprise, Art, DECA, Future Leaders of America and Student Government worked collaboratively to raise $1,460. These monies will be donated to the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) and the Red Cross in support of hurricane relief efforts. 
According to PRO adviser David Anderson, the breakfast not only raised awareness and respect for veterans among students, but also provided a platform for students to achieve a meritorious goal through cohesion and selflessness.

Members of VFW 6394 are seen here with students and staff during the breakfast.
