Members of Carmel Academy’s Student Council restock toys in the pediatric unit at Stamford Hospital.

Students at Carmel Academy in Greenwich visited both The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County and David’s Treasure Tree at Stamford Hospital to restock shelves. Carmel fourth graders stopped by the Stamford-based food bank just days before Thanksgiving, bringing with them more than 200 pounds of donated food items and close to $150 in cash donations. Around the same time, Carmel’s Student Council leaders visited David’s Treasure Tree Toy Closet in the pediatric unit at Stamford Hospital, delivering a big box overflowing with new toys collected at the school. Every child admitted to the hospital is given a toy from the tree as part of the David’s Treasure Tree program founded as a tribute to David Bennett Kanarek of Greenwich, who, in 2000, lost his battle with leukemia at the age of 15. David’s mother, Robin, was at the hospital to talk to Carmel students about the program.
