Due to overwhelming student contributions, Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School has collected more than 325 pounds of candy to be donated to the United States troops deployed overseas through Operation Gratitude.

Members of the Community Service Club gave up their lunch periods to go around the school and collect the candy, and then assisted one another to box it up so that it can be shipped to the troops. 

“We couldn't be prouder of our club members, along with the rest of the students and staff members at OBMS for donating so generously and helping us to collect much more than we ever expected,” said Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School special education teacher Erica Piacentini.
