South Grove Elementary recently participated in a toy drive to benefit Birthday Wishes, a charity that provides birthday parties to children in homeless shelters. This service project was far from typical, however, as the event was spearheaded by the Mehta family—Sanam, Aayan, Savi and Siya. Supported by the school and the South Grove PTA, the Mehta family drew up the flyer, put out the boxes, and collected nearly a hundred presents for homeless children all over Long Island. Last year, Sanam, Aayan and Savi collected new pajamas and books for a different charity organization, and they also participate in collecting toys and volunteering at food banks during the holiday season. These South Grove students make serving their community a true family affair.
