The Louis M. Klein Environmental Club members began a “Water Awareness” campaign, collecting water bottles for the many families and communities who are still in need of clean drinking water months after Hurricane Sandy devastated their towns.
Sixth grade students Amanda Fameli, Lilah Smolev and Abby Credendino and 7th grader Emily Fournier created a Water video that was shown in class to raise awareness of those close by us who are still in need of this basic necessity.
The Water drive, which lasted only one week, had students bringing in cases of water to donate or purchasing and an extra water bottle at lunch. When the collection was tallied, the Environmental Club had collected 761 water bottles and were donated to Convoy of Hope, a sister organization of the American Red Cross specifically aiding victims of Hurricane Sandy on Long Island.
