PLEASANTVILLE – High School Principal Stephen L. Townsend and his staff and students spent last week donating money, collecting goods, buying subs and more to benefit the many victims of Hurricane Sandy.

The Oct. 29 storm caused devastating flooding here along the south side homes near LakesBay.

On Monday, students and staff supplied homemade baked goods that were sold in the morning, during lunch and after school to raise money for victims.

On Tuesday, everyone had the chance to buy a lottery tickets for $1 each or $5 for an armful to raise money.

Wednesday was denim day. Members of the staff paid $3 each, and students paid $2 for the chance to wear denim and help out Sandy’s victims.

Thursday was can-can day. Students and staff brought in canned goods and toiletries to deposit in large collection boxes at the main entrance of the school.

Friday was sub day, with the proceeds from the sale of submarine sandwiches earmarked for hurricane victims.

Townsend was scheduled to give baskets and money to those hurt by Sandy during a presentation held after the end of the school day.
