St Leonard’s stocks Food Bank
One week out of every month, students of St Leonard’s Boys’ Secondary School Service Club will dedicate their time to making donations to a needy cause or doing community work.
During the donation of a barrel of food items to the HIV/AIDS Food Bank on Friday, teacher Winston Cumberbatch said that after the service club was formed last year, members decided to institute a once-a-month Good Deed Week during which they would choose a parish that will benefit from a community clean-up, hampers for senior citizens or a children’s home, or from some other wholesome activity.
He added that the Community Independence Celebrations Secretariat had taken an interest in what the club was doing and meetings were being held with that body.
Cumberbatch said that after being formed last year, the club distributed food hampers and made several other presentations, including the donation of a television set to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. (LK)
