On Dec. 10, a bunch of children from , and gave up their Saturday afternoon to play music in Roosevelt Field Mall for the Salvation Army.
The students played holiday music to help raise money for those less fortunate and raised more than $300.
Scott McGrath was the one who put the idea in place. Along with his son Johnny McGrath, Dylan Meehan, Jeffrey Gramlich, Michael Halkiatis, Sydney Inger, Ashley Halkiatis and Eric Bernstein played for most of the afternoon.
The children were satisfied with what they accomplished in such a short amount of time. For children ranging in ages from 10-14 to give up a Saturday afternoon for community service is something that does not happen very often because of the video games and computer age.
They should be proud of what they did and continue to do it in the future.
