In honor of Veterans Day, Floral Park-Bellerose School students and staff participated in Operation Gratitude’s Halloween Candy Give Back Program.

The school community brought in excess candy to be donated to deployed troops, local military units, veterans and first responders through Operation Gratitude. Collected candy is also being donated to the Wounded Warrior Project; Our Lady of Victory Parish’s food bank, which is sending the candy to Haiti; and the Hance Family Foundation.
