The Rhame Avenue K-Kids held a fundraiser for Bethany House, a nonprofit organization that supports women and children caught in the crisis of homelessness.
The K-Kids sold paper hearts for $1 and donated all proceeds to Bethany House. In addition, the East Rockaway Kiwanis Club donated money to buy supplies for the families living in the facility. Faculty advisers Sherina Lugo and Dawn McCabe, parent volunteers and a few K-Kids members visited the shelter to deliver the boxes of donations. During their visit, the K-Kids made a Valentine’s Day craft and decorated cookies with the children currently living at Bethany. The advisers said it was “a fulfilling way to spread love this Valentine’s Day!’
