Oyster Bay Youth Donates Health Kits to Morning Star Program

July 18, 2023 / Madonna Heights News

William Bodian, a sophomore from Oyster Bay, donated over 50 Health Kits for residents at our Morning Star program for women in recovery. Each kit included a first-aid kit, face mask, hand sanitizer, hand soap, hand cream and more. He also donated diaper bags that included diapers, bottles, blankets, baby food, hand sanitizer, a first aid kit, baby toys, baby teethers, and more.

William and his brother were inspired to create Health Kits during the pandemic. They were concerned about the safety of the most vulnerable in the community. They recognized those experiencing homelessness didn’t have access to protection against COVID-19, and they wanted to help, so they created and assembled Sanitation Kits that they donated to Momma’s House and the People’s Pantry.

But William wasn’t through. He explains, “I became even more empathetic, realizing how people struggling with addiction are often overlooked and stigmatized. I wanted to do more to continue to show my support, and I developed the Health Kits.”

Thank you, William, for your concern for others and your willingness to go the extra mile to show them you care.
