Farmingville, NY –  On May 24, Councilwoman Jane Bonner visited the Frank J. Carasiti Elementary School in Rocky Point to help students prepare and mail out “Lunchbags of Love” to members of the military who are serving overseas. The first grade students in Mrs. Stacy Iberger’s class made boxes containing personal hygiene items, candy, pens, paper, note cards, word puzzle books and decks of cards which were all donated by the students. Decorated bags and letters written by the students were also included to those who will receive the boxes. During her visit, the Councilwoman presented certificates of appreciation to Mrs. Iberger and the students who donated the items and filled the postal boxes.

“It’s heartwarming to see the enthusiasm of the students who took part in this wonderful project,” said Councilwoman Bonner. “I want to thank Mrs. Iberger, the children and their parents for helping to make life a little better for our military men and women.”
