SPARC/Interact Club Serve Those in Need

Five members of Carle Place High School’s SPARC/Interact Club recently gave their time to serve 500 meals to those in need.

The students and their adviser, Mr. Morris, along with six students from Mineola High School, spent March 29 in a Lower East Side soup kitchen, leaving for the city at 6 a.m., serving meals and cleaning up afterwards.

The Carle Place volunteers included Krystie Cardoso, Alexandra Ferreira, Julia Powell, Monique Slater and Marie Stellato.
Slater, secretary of SPARC said, “It was such a rewarding experience to see the smiles on people’s faces when we greeted them and served them like they were at a restaurant.  Respect and positive energy filled the room.”
