WOODBURY — The Leo Club has started its annual Nonnewaug food drive, striving to assist the people who are in need around the holidays.

Junior Leo Club member Katie Farrell is trying to spread the word for people to donate more and has put in a lot of work for this food drive, which started before Thanksgiving and will continue into December.

“We are trying to help the local community by providing food for families in Woodbury that are in need,” Farrell said, “which is extremely important, especially during the holidays.” 

Kate Peterson, the French teacher here at Nonnewaug, lives in the community and has previously run the Leo Club food drive.

“All of the food goes to the community food council in Woodbury,” Peterson said, “and furthermore, the people in our own community are benefitting from the drive.” 

There is always someone who is in need of help, and this Leo Club food drive is an important step to making Woodbury a better community. Even if it’s something small, any donation is helpful, according to Farrell.

“Our overall goal is to collect as much food as possible for the families in need,” Farrell said, “and hopefully have everyone in Nonnewaug donate at least a little something.”
