Student Project Results in Large Donation to Welcome Friends

On February 17, 2021, Ward Melville High School students delivered over 1,200 hygiene
supplies to the Welcome Friends Soup Kitchen of Greater Port Jefferson. The volunteer
project, titled Mission: Toothbrush, led by Mikaeel Zohair involved several donation drives
held within the Three Village School District over the past year. The goal of Mission:
Toothbrush is to promote the importance of dental hygiene by providing people who lack
the ability to obtain dental and other hygiene products with the necessary supplies. Items
such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, mouthwash, shaving cream and diapers will
go directly to people in need in our area. Supporting Mikaeel were students Claire Yang,
Riya Sangwan, Neil Mehta and Jean Chung.

After researching local organizations, Mikaeel contacted the Welcome Friends volunteer
coordinator to determine whether they would be interested in receiving the donations. One
of the kitchen coordinators responded to Mikaeel’s offer and a meeting was arranged to
receive the boxes of supplies. Mikaeel said that he loved the Welcome Friends mission – to
provide hot, nutritious meals five days a week to those in need in the greater Port Jefferson
area. Our coordinator was also very impressed stating, “These students are aware of how
many individuals don’t have access to these types of products and are willing to give their
time and effort to organize various drives at their school and in the community. These
actions are making a difference in the lives of people less fortunate and the students are an
inspiration to us all!”
