The Student Council of Roosevelt Intermediate School in Westfield went on a shopping spree on Feb. 28 to purchase children’s toys and baby items for the Children Specialized Hospital in Mountainside. The Student Council, which includes sixth, seventh and eighth graders, raised $1,000 during a fall fundraiser to fill the wish list created by the hospital’s long term care unit.
On March 3, all of the purchased items, including a gift card, were delivered by students (l-r) Nora Bergin, Barney Veres (student council president), and Max Feldman, representing the executive board of Roosevelt’s Student Council, to hospital representatives. RIS Student Council Advisers Marissa Conneely and Erin Aiello accompanied the students.
