Members of the Leo Club recently completed their annual Blizzard Bags project for the Three Village Meals on Wheels program. Their thoughtful project started with fundraising bake sales in the school, shopping for all the food items and assembling the bags for delivery to the organization, which then delivered the packages to the senior citizens who receive Meals on Wheels services. Each Blizzard Bag contained four shelf-stable boxed or canned meals for seniors to have in their home to use when their daily Meals on Wheels delivery is canceled due to poor winter weather. Last week’s early winter snowstorm forced Meals on Wheels to cancel its regular meal delivery, but the recipients already had their Blizzard Bags in their homes. “Our students have done this project for quite a few years, and it was really special for them to be acknowledged with a note of kindness from the organization’s vice president during the first snowstorm of the season,” said technology teacher Mr. Brian Chalmers, who co-advises the club with school librarian Mrs. Mary LaSita. “They learn to understand the impact of their dedication and efforts more fully.”
