Members of the Rye Neck High School Student Senate held their eighth annual food drive and collected nonperishable food items from Dec. 6-12. All proceeds were donated to the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Food Pantry, which assists local families in need.

“Our students realize that hunger and poverty are issues present in their own community and this collection and donation speaks to the compassion, kindness and selflessness of them,” said Karen Parisi, the Student Senate faculty advisor and a social studies teacher.

Each month, Student Senate members organize a community service outreach through their “Leading by Example” project. The food drive was part of their community service efforts for the month of December.
