Fourth-grade students at Joseph A. Edgar Elementary School in Rocky Point celebrated the Fall season by creating "baby" scarecrows in a donation drive for UNICEF.
With help from their teachers, the students created their scarecrows using hay, other construction materials and infant clothing to display in the school’s hallways.
During their classes, students discussed the importance of helping others, and after everyone finished constructing their scarecrows, the entire school had the
chance to vote for their favorite by dropping loose change in a UNICEF box located in front of the scarecrow of their choice. The drive lasted one day and the school collected a record total of $870.05.
