(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)-Friday Lakewood Leaders volunteered at Manatee Elementary School in their annual Christmas community service event.
Members traveled on a charter bus to the school and participated in different group activities. One group helped the younger children decorate cookies with icing and sprinkles, another played various games, and one group put on a Christmas play for the children.
Other members were responsible for making gift bags for the kindergartners. The gift bags included a coloring book, crayons, stickers, socks, and other treats.
The goal of this event was to bring Christmas spirit to children who qualify for reduced or free lunch.
Junior Chris Georgas said, “This was my second-year volunteering for this event and every year I have a blast. The children are so sweet and energetic.”
