Children’s masks are being distributed at Islip High School on April 23 and 24, donated by the district’s vendor Renu. The initiative was organized by Scott Colletti and Mike VanDenburg, who formed the Promise for Hope organization to help students in need. They have also donated masks to the Brentwood, Bay Shore, Central Islip, and East Islip school districts.

“We are very grateful for their thoughtfulness and generosity, as masks are difficult to get,” said Islip Superintendent Ellen Semel.

During the schools’ closure due to the coronavirus, Islip has been providing meals for students’ families daily, with pickup at the high school. The masks come in “grab and go” bags of three masks, and will be available on Thursday, April 24 and Friday, April 25 during the regular lunch distribution hours from 10 a.m. to noon.
