NEW ROCHELLE — Fourth and fifth grade volunteers performed at Montefiore New Rochelle (formerly Sound Shore Hospital) and sang Christmas carols to the patients.

About 23 students went in all.

"We have over 400 volunteers at our hospital, and I enjoy having students come in and sing Christmas songs, and the elders enjoy it too," said Tony Alfano, vice president and executive directer.

The students also enjoyed the occasion. "I liked going to the Sound Shore because it made the patients happy, and I like to sing," said Zoey Campos (5V).

"I think it was a nice thing to do because it made them smile," said Nicholas Sarcinella (4H).

It seems like everyone enjoys singing at the hospital.
