Imagine being able to take out your checkbook and with a few scratches of your pen, do the following for Syosset schools:
- Save the positions for two full time teachers for an entire school year, with money leftover for teacher aids.
- Pay for Syosset High School commencement ceremonies... for the next three years.
- Pay for almost all the new textbooks required by every single Syosset elementary school student for an entire year.
- Employ a social worker for a year with enough leftover to hire a lifeguard for the pool.
