LAWRENCE – Lawrence Catholic Academy students, teachers and staff held a holiday service drive to help the people devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
The school held a dress-down day, and for a small donation, everyone could escape the traditional uniform and business attire and wear what they wanted to school. The event raised $1,000 and 100 percent of the money will go to the Hurricane Sandy Long Island Disaster Relief Fund.
Also each class was assigned to bring in certain items such as clothes, paper towels, baby items, soap, First Aid kits, toothbrushes and dog and cat food, all of which will go to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
