Christ the King High School held a toy drive and blood drive to give back during the holidays.

The Christ the King community in Middle Village was in the giving spirit last week, as the high school hosted its annual toy drive and semi-annual blood drive.

Christ the King High School’s toy drive helped provide a merry Christmas for the children at Cohen’s Hospital — formerly Schneider’s Children Hospital — at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, where children with cancer received the toys donated by the CK Campus.

Toys weren’t the only things being donated at Christ the King this holiday season.

The community also hosted its Semi-Annual Blood Drive in conjunction with the New York Blood Center at the high school. Eligible seniors took time from their busy school schedules to give the gift of life this holiday season by donating their blood, and were able to collect over 100 pints of blood. The New York Blood Center is always in need of blood, all year round, not just when disasters strike.

“We at Christ the King High School are proud of the students that came out to donate blood and donate toys to children with cancer,” said Christ the King High School’s Principal Peter Mannarino. “Christ the King has always strived to instill a strong sense of moral values and civic mindedness in our students and we are pleased that they are setting an example for others.”
