Gathering as One To Help Thousands

Woodland Middle School achieved first place in Island Harvest’s Students Feeding Students Challenge.
Across Long Island, 18 middle schools and high schools participated in this challenge to donate food, water and other basic necessities to families in need. Among the competition, Woodland donated 3,658 pounds of food and water through their sixth-grade food drive and seventh-grade “Water Walk,” awarding them first place.
To honor their tremendous donation, Island Harvest CEO and Woodland Middle School alumni Randi Shubin Dresner awarded teachers, students and the school a trophy and certificate of appreciation for providing 1,000 meals to families on Long Island.
In addition, sixth-grader Natalie Hernandez received a certificate of recognition for donating the most food as a student.   
“As a prior student of Woodland and current East Meadow resident, I am extremely proud,” Randi said as she acknowledged the school’s contribution. “Programs like what you have done and will continue to do will make a difference in the lives of others. Your contributions helped children and families struggling with hunger on Long Island.”
