On Wednesday, March 25, 2015 the children from the Junior Legion of Mary made a donation of $182.23 to Meals on Wheels of Greater Hyde Park. Cynthia Meddaugh, a second grade teacher at Regina Coeli School and Bonnie West who teaches kindergarten, made the presentation during an assembly of all of the school children. The students from kindergarten through 8th grade collected the money through donations or, in some cases, by performing extra chores to earn the money. It was their project during the season of Lent to reach out and support members of the community. Our president, Jack Fenton accepted the donation given in an Easter basket and thanked the children of the Junior Legion of Mary and their moderators for their generous support.
The teachers expressed intetest in having the students continue to maintain a relationship with Meals on Wheels. We look forward to such a relationship!
