Students from Sachem High School North recently helped build a home in East Patchogue through Habitat for Humanity.

Open to leadership students at the high school, the activity was organized by Leslie Zanone, a social worker at Sachem North, and Jonathan Chiaramonte, a social studies teacher.

“We hope to get more classes involved,” said Zanone. “There has been a tremendous amount of interest in the school from students and teachers. We believe that Sachem North students could organize six builds a year, and that would be a dream!

“It is a very real experience for the students, and a concrete way for them to give their time and energy for the cause. We already have students asking to go back again in the spring,” said Zanone.
