Student group meets in Greenlawn to help sophomore
Compassion Without Borders, a new group of high school students from across Suffolk County, met at Harborfields High School in Greenlawn last week to plan their first project -- raising money for the Dylan's Footprint foundation to help Dylan Thompson, 16, a Harborfields sophomore who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Samantha Colanussi, left, a 17-year-old Harborfields senior who attended the meeting, said, "Our whole school is happy to help him and it's nice that other schools will be joining us." Brian Lindo, right, who is also 17 and is president of the Harborfields student government, said the meeting helped stress the importance of helping others. For the details, click here.
