The Student Council held a coat drive before winter break and collected more than 130 items to be donated to those in need. The students organized the coats, hoodies, vests, blazers and snowsuits by size and gender and then delivered to Good Ground Dry Cleaners in Hampton Bays for cleaning, free of charge, before being distributed to families in need at SES. A donation was also made to Human Resources of the Hamptons.
