This year, club members purchased clothing and toys for 61 children of all ages.

Donations included $700 and three boxes of toys from the National Honor Society; more than $200 from the high school guidance and secretarial departments; and various donations from faculty and staff members from throughout the district.

In addition, the club raised more than $300 from local families who attended the Leo Club Gingerbread House Building Party at Scotchtown Avenue.

The Goshen High School Leo Club Advisor is Lisa Bellotto.
