High school senior Nicholas Sidorowicz ran a pajama and blanket drive for the Suffolk County Child Advocacy Center this holiday season. This is his fourth year running the drive at the high school, but has been collecting materials to benefit this organization since he was eight years old. When Sidorowicz and his mother were first looking to service the community years ago, he said that the Suffolk County Child Advocacy Center stood out to him most, because his heart went out to the children—and he’s been initiating this drive ever since.

“When kids are first put into foster care, they’re not really allowed to take anything with them,” said Sidorowicz, “and I wanted to help, and give them something to hold on to during a scary and confusing time for them.”
