HUNTINGTON, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Steve Stern (D-Huntington) 16th LD, joined the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless’ annual “Backpack Pirates” school supply collection drive and thanks to the generous response of members of our community, and the assistance of Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts(MMA), in Huntington, was able to collect supplies that will enable many of the neediest students in our community to start the new school year with the tools they need to succeed.

“I thank the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless for running the ‘Backpack Pirates’ collection and hosting an annual party for children in need and to the many members of our community who donated supplies” Legislator Stern said. “I particularly wish to thank and acknowledge Joshu Matthew Castillo, Head Instructor at Tiger Schulmann’s MMA, and his students, for joining in our effort and collecting a large number of notebooks, pencils, binders and other items. His dedication to our community and commitment to the well-being of our
young people is greatly appreciated.”
