GREENWICH - The Greenwich Equality Club ran a “donation drive” in order to assist the local food pantry, Comfort Foods. Traditionally, a food drive would focus on non-perishable food items exclusively, however, this year there was an extra need for hygiene products and paper items, so the club made a point of incentivizing those particular items.
The class period which collected the most points received a thank you of hot chocolate and homemade cookies made by the club’s treasurer and Comfort Foods volunteer Brian Wells, Jr.
The club collected and tallied donations several times before loading the goods and bringing them to the food pantry right before the holiday break.
The event could not have been successful without the efforts of its participating members, pictured below left to right: Olive Magowan (vice president), Allie Chuhta (president), Chloe Bentzen, Brian Wells Jr. (treasurer), Kayla Stewart.
