Local representatives from the Knights of Columbus, American Legion, Breakfast Rotary Club, and East Farmingdale Kiwanis visited Farmingdale High School on Tuesday, January 17, 2024, to present a check to the district administrators. The donation for the families of Bus One was raised through a Field of Honor fundraiser held by the groups in November. The fundraiser featured a display of over 50 flags in front of the high school, paying tribute to the lives of Gina Pellettiere and Beatrice Ferrari.

The Farmingdale School District expresses its sincere appreciation for the selfless contributions of these courageous veterans in aiding our Daler Community. We extend our gratitude for your time and efforts in organizing the fundraiser and placing the flags.
