The Pulaski Street Elementary School in Riverhead Kids donated 684 pounds of Halloween Candy to the Lab's AdoptaPlatoon Program by holding a Halloween Candy Drive competition. The idea for holding this event was conceived by sixth grader Marissa Braunreuther, whose mom, Mary Ellen, is on the Brookhaven National Laboratoryís Adopt-a-Platoon team. What a huge success!!!
