6 - 12 HUGS



The Wantagh 6-12 Association has formed “HUGS” to help support our Wantagh families in their time of need. This may include a parent or child in the hospital for an extended time, a serious illness, a loss of an immediate family member, as well as other unfortunate circumstances. HUGS’ goal is to try and ease the burden on families during their difficult time. We may do this by sending a gift basket or gift card to a local food establishment.

For us to offer support this committee throughout the entire year, we are asking families, that are able, for a small donation in any amount you are comfortable giving.  All donations can be sent by cash or check made out to: Wantagh 6-12 Association with HUGS in the memo section to the WMS or WHS office. You can also visit our webpage on our PTA MemberHub where you will see the option to pay online.

If you know of a family in Wantagh Middle or High School that you feel needs our support, please contact one of our coordinators or one of the school social worker/psychologist listed below. All calls and inquiries are kept confidential.

Please return all envelopes to the 6-12 Mailbox. If you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call. Thank you for all your support in advance.
