A Nose for a Cause

Setauket Elementary School was blanketed with individuals donning red noses as the school community came together to raise funds and awareness for two important causes.

As part of the building’s sprit week celebration, individuals donated $2 to purchase a red nose and help make a difference in the lives of children. As a result of the building’s generosity, Setauket raised close to $800 to benefit Room4Love and national Red Nose Day.

Two former Setauket Elementary School students and their parents started an organization call Room4Love, an organization that raises money to remodel bedrooms of children who are diagnosed with cancer. Red Nose Day is an initiative aimed at ensuring that children are safe, healthy, educated and empowered in all 50 states as well as in many countries in Latin America, Asia and Africa.

The schoolwide initiative was organized by the Setauket student council.
