On Dec. 13, the Art Honor Society at South High School in the Valley Stream Central High School District donated $500 to Holy Name of Mary Parish’s food pantry in Valley Stream.

Art Honor Society adviser Paulette Lowe said the honor society held a pumpkin festival fundraiser around Halloween for the cause. Students carved and sold 90 pumpkins at the event. In addition, students also crafted other Halloween items for sale, including scarecrows, mummies and ghosts.

Sister Margie Kelly of Holy Name of Mary Parish accepted the donation and commended students for their kindness and generosity. “South High School has a history of community outreach, and I thank you for this,” she said.
