EDISON — A spirited group of Wardlaw-Hartridge students joined alumni in a volunteer outreach effort at the Community Food Bank in Hillside on Sunday, May 6. This year, the group provided service on “Family Day” and included young children in the volunteer project.
Karen Leach of Newark, Alumni Board President, organized the event with the help of Rudy Brandl of Fanwood, Director of Alumni Relations. Alumni Board Vice President Max Stevens of Hoboken and Chip Moody of Hillsborough also represented the alumni.
The student contingent was led by the Hernandez-Webster crew, including five students: Max, Julian, Tomas, Leila and Nicolas, all of Edison. Andrew Webster, Head of School, and Aurea Hernandez-Webster of Edison also contributed to the assembly line, which produced 266 boxes of food for senior citizens in need.
Other students who participated included Laura Becker of Scotch Plains, Astuti Bhasin of Edison, Lorianna Carlucci of Edison, Huma Naqvi of Carteret, Uditi Nichani of Scotch Plains, Ali Reza of Carteret and Austin Scudder of Hillside. Six children under 12 joined the group, including Kendall Norris, Robert Brandl and Ryan Brandl.
