Mattlin Middle School students recently joined with Oceanside Elementary School No. 4 to help families in need during the past holiday season.
More than 50 students from the school travelled to Oceanside in order to assist in the creation of gift baskets for local families who were devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
The baskets were filled with donated gift cards, non-perishable foods and basic toiletries. The trip provided a great way for students to assist a community that suffered heavy damage from the storm, organizers said.
