District holds Flags for Freedom fundraiser for 9/11 charities
The Miller Place School District supported the Flags for Freedom fundraiser to commemorate on the 21st anniversary and honor those impacted on September 11th.
The Miller Place High School Student Government launched the effort, through which members of the community were invited to purchase American flags to be displayed along Memorial Drive from September through the end of October.
“The Miller Place community has displayed tremendous dedication and respect for those who were affected by the tragedies of September 11th. I applaud the staff and students engaged in this effort to recognize and support in remembering this tragic event,” said Superintendent of Schools Mr. Seth Lipshie.
The fundraiser raised money for organizations working to help those impacted by the tragedies of 9-11, including Tunnel to Towers and the Wounded Warrior Project. To date, 130 flags have been sold. The Student Government will be selling flags during homecoming on September 17.
