Memorial Students Illustrate Kindness

Valley Stream Memorial Junior High School art students created portraits for children of the Ukraine who have been challenged by poverty, removed from homes of abuse, neglected or abandoned as well as suffered by tragedy due to the armed conflict in the eastern part of their country. “For all of them, receiving the portraits will be a fun and meaningful event,” said teacher Darla Collins. “The Memorial students worked hard and are looking forward to knowing that they are a part of creating memories and smiles on the children's faces.”
