A Place for Friends

As a result of a self-run philanthropy project, Ward Melville High School student Alex Frazier has graciously donated a beautiful “Friendship Bench” to the school.

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Alex began cultivating crops, which he exchanged for items to recycle. He then used the monies received from the recyclables, approximately $150, to fund the purchase of a new outdoor bench. The donated bench has been placed under a tree at the front of the school and was dedicated in memory of a friend of Alex’s family, Devin Soblick.
