The event was held in the Longfellow/LDI Middle School gymnasium.

Students collected $960 in donations for care packages, which will include an assortment of $25 gift cards to various businesses, reusable water bottles/canteens, toothbrushes and toothpaste, hand warmers, socks, hats and gloves, toilet paper, flashlights, and sling bags to contain all the items.
