Baking for a Great Cause

Locust Valley High School’s Hispanic Heritage Club and Greek Club presented a check for $410 to the Moreano World Medical Mission on Feb. 16 after a bake sale earlier in the month. The bake sale saw students produce creative treats like s’more cupcakes, brownies, cookies and cupcakes with a beach scene, umbrella and gummy bears.

The Moreano World Medical Mission has provided free reconstructive surgeries to children born with deformities or have suffered from trauma or burns since 1999. Dr. Edwin Moreano, whose daughter Gianna attends LVHS, travels to Latin America each year to provide care for those in desperate need.
