Locust Valley students never disappoint when it comes to helping others.  So, it is no surprise that the Locust Valley High School Interact Club collected toys to benefit the sixth annual Matthew Fetzer Toy Drive.


Matthew was a Locust Valley Middle School student who sadly lost his battle with cancer. While undergoing treatment, Matthew vowed that when he was better, he would provide toys for children stuck in hospitals. Although he could not carry out this dream, his parents Ann and Bill deliver holiday cheer to hospital patients each year in his honor.


Each of the Locust Valley Schools participates in the toy drive, from elementary to high school level. The Fetzer family recently picked up the large donation of toys collected by the Interact Club and will return to receive toys from the Middle School Student Government later this month. The Fetzer family delivers the toys to various local hospitals for children who may otherwise not have much cheer. The toy drive is ongoing throughout the year and toys are delivered to children several times during the year.


Way to go LV students, sharing with others and showing the community that who you really are!
