The Edmund W. Miles chapter of the National Junior Honor Society was asked to participate in the Coins for Wishes challenge by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 

During the month of March, they raised money for two boys from Suffolk County suffering from a serious illness. Each NJHS member was assigned to a homeroom and each Friday, they visited the homerooms to collect the Make-A-Wish boxes. 

At the end of the campaign, the students were invited to meet the children for whom they raised the money. A sendoff ceremony was held at the TD Bank in Lake Ronkonkoma. Edmund W. Miles came in second place in the challenge, raising $1,880.60.
