In the Spirit of Giving

Marissa Gologorsky, a student in the Life Skills class at Islip High School, got into the holiday spirit this December by organizing a local toy drive. Marissa organized, advertised, and collected for the schoolwide toy drive, then delivered the donated toys to Southside Hospital’s pediatrics unit to help brighten the day of a child!

“Marissa is a kind and giving person, who works tirelessly to help others in need whenever she has a chance,” remarked her teacher Linda Colucciello. “She understands that many people like herself have challenges to overcome on a daily basis and she has made it her goal to help anyone who she can with her selfless spirit. Marissa is a wonderful young woman who is a role model for her classmates and friends.”
