HEUVELTON -- The BOCES Special Education Department's therapists held a food drive recently in lieu of a holiday party or gift exchange.

At a recent meeting staff members collected nonperishable food and $85 for each of the following food pantries: Heuvelton, Hopkinton, and North Lawrence.

Staff members chose the pantries because they receive minimal other supports and because many of their students are from those three areas.
