Long Beach Middle School seventh-grader Jake Young has been recognized as a Distinguished Finalist in the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program, presented through Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals. He was selected based on his involvement in community service and volunteer work. 

Jake regularly volunteers his time to aid the New York chapter of the Little Saint Nick Foundation, leading children in community groups to pack anti-anxiety gift bags that serve 600-1,000 pediatric emergency room patients every month. He and his siblings also dress in costume to distribute the items to hospitals and interact with patients and staff members to brighten their day. 

Congratulations to Jake for making a positive impact on so many others!
