The Chanukah Dreidel-thon at IVDU LI was a smashing success as the first annual, student-oriented fundraiser. The Dreidelthon campaign intentionally coincided with the greater IVDU/Yachad Up-reaching day, the annual day of giving that benefits the greater organization. The IVDU schools provide a whole-child approach to special education in a warm and supportive yet professional environment.

At its North Woodmere location, IVDU LI students all got involved in the fundraising campaign. Dr. Sara Seplowitz, School Principal, developed this year’s campaign in an effort to involve every student. “The fundraising effort is a hands-on and fun way to help our students learn how to help their school.”

Students had the opportunity to participate in fun dreidel games and competitions, collect sponsorships from friends and family, and earn fun prizes at all donation levels. Prizes were also selected carefully to provide both something exciting for the child in addition to something to benefit the whole class or classroom. At IVDU LI, everyone is truly a winner!
