Wheatley has a long-standing relationship with the Mary Brennan INN in Hempstead, NY. As part of that relationship, we have held toy drives, clothing drives, school supplies drives and food drives. In fact, a highlight of our yearly Showdown Competition is the collection of hundreds and hundreds of food items and personal care items for the INN.
This past Sunday, our donation was less tangible but no less important. For their annual Day of Thanks and Giving, a group of our string musicians were accompanied by Mr. Orlovsky in order to provide musical accompaniment. We are thankful that our student musicians and faculty members can take the time from their weekend for such an important event.
