Districtwide Effort Raises Scholarship Funds for Graduating Seniors

Lindenhurst, NEW YORK (January 2024)—Staff and students in the Lindenhurst Union Free School District are taking part in the Lindy Dollars for Scholars fundraiser. Spearheaded by the District’s mental health team and coordinated by the Lindy Social Workers and the Lindenhurst High School Student Council Club, Lindy Dollars for Scholars raises funds for graduating seniors.

Students have been decorating donation boxes in Lindenhurst green for use by each building’s staff. Each week, staff members are encouraged to donate $1 or $2 while they check their mailboxes at the school main office where the bins are located. The goal of the fundraiser is to create student, staff and community synergy while raising money for a good cause.

"Just think: If only half of our employees contributed $1 each week, by the end of the year we would be able to provide $12,600 in scholarships to deserving graduating seniors,” said Interim Superintendent Vincent Caravana.
