Herricks HICAP Club Stepped It Up For Another Year to sponsor a Holiday Adopt-a-Child Program.

Herricks students who are apart of the HICAP club (Herricks International Children's Aid Program) stepped it up for another year to sponsor a Holiday Adopt-a-Child Program.  

High School Nurse Marianne Marsigliano contacted the Nassau County Department of Social Services and got the mores of more than 100 children who had special "holiday wishes" for things such as clothing, boots, toys, and books. 

The students of HICAP adopted 11 out of those 100 children and purchased the gifts the children wished for. At HICAP's last club meeting the students wrapped and celebrated together as they made sure that every child's "holiday wish" was granted.
