Mustangs can brighten holidays for needy kids

Katie Foley – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- As the holidays approach, LRHS’s Lakewood Leaders is preparing by getting involved in the “Magic of Mittens” program.

The “Magic of Mittens” program partners with local schools to help provide Christmas to children in need. These are children from families who do not have the means to provide a gift to their own children at Christmas.   

This program sponsored over 400 children last year and anticipates they will be sponsoring even more children this year due to COVID-19.

To participate in the Magic of Mittens Program drop off donations such as backpacks, board games, sports balls, school supplies, and toys such as Barbies and Legos to math teacher Meghan Sugalski in room 587.

Vice President of Lakewood Leaders senior Hannah Miller said, “The Magic of Mittens Program provides a wonderful opportunity to help make the holiday season a little brighter for a child in need.”
