Hicksville Gardens Civic Association And Lee Avenue School Provide Holiday Cheer


Hicksville Gardens Civic Association has been working with Lee Avenue School in the Hicksville Public Schools for more than 10 years to provide food and toy drives for the less fortunate. The holiday season is a time to support families in the community who are less fortunate.

This season, the Hicksville Gardens Civic Association (HGCA) reached out to Lee Avenue School and adopted five families for the holidays. This initiative was made possible by the efforts of the HGCA Community Service Committee, chaired by Christina Mirro. The generous donations of the HGCA members and the Simonello family allowed HGCA to bring holiday cheer to 15 children. These donations were delivered to Lee Avenue Elementary School to bring a happy holiday season to these five families.

The mission of Hicksville Gardens Civic Association aims to improve the quality of life for the Hicksville community by encouraging community awareness, participation and civic pride. The families and staff at the Lee Avenue School are grateful for the partnership it has established and appreciate the kindness and generosity of Hicksville Gardens Civic Association members and its donors.
