Northport students enrich community connections

Northport K-8 students from all grade levels participated in a district wide initiative called “Movers For The Military” just in time for Thanksgiving! Students and their parents collected nine moving boxes filled with new items for the kitchen and bathroom, blankets, new pillows, new sheets, clothing, personal
care items and even a brand new prosthetic leg to fit a homeless veteran.
Northport K-8 School partnered with local moving company, Two Men and a Truck to
collect the items benefiting Big Hearts Homeless Shelter in Ft. Pierce. The
drive for the homeless veterans instilled in students the knowledge that they
have the power to help those in need that have served our country in a very real
and powerful way. The students were thrilled to be able to give back to the
community and to lift up our Veteran Partners In Education.  Pictured, from left,

students, instructor Mala Woessner and two representatives from Two Men and a
Truck Moving Company.
