Leo Club Delivers Food Baskets

By Dick Andrews

The Milford High School Leo Club, a Lions youth organization, delivered 26 food baskets in the Milford area for Thanksgiving.

The Leo’s, Honor Society, Student Counsel and Key club held a food drive during the first weeks of November. They asked the students to bring can goods and nonperishable items to be used to make up Thanksgiving food baskets. The drive was very successful. They collected enough can goods and nonperishable items to make 26 food baskets. The Leo’s had several fundraisers. The money they raised was used to purchase a turkey for each of the 26 baskets. The Honor Society, Student Counsel and Key clubs purchased dinner rolls, stuffing mix and pies, to complete the Thanksgiving dinner baskets. Each food basket contained the items needed to make a nice Thanksgiving dinner and enough can goods to last for several days.

The Clubs met after school the Monday before Thanksgiving and divided the collected food items between the 26 food baskets. The Leos delivered the food baskets to needy families in the Milford community, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Leo’s are busy during December, collecting toy for Toys for Tots and ringing the bell at Wal-Mart for the Salvation Army. They will be helping to serve dinner at the Lion Clubs annual Christmas party for the Visually Impaired. These young people are engaged in many activities that will help people in our community to have a better Christmas.
