Working in partnership with the Bellevue Community Center, the Edgemoor Leo’s Club organized its 4th Annual School Drive for Homeless Youth on Wednesday, September 16, 2020. Donations were given to the State of Delaware, and will be handed out to local children across the state who are physically displaced due to Covid-19 and other life challenges.
The Leo's were able to donate a total of 63 book bags. Each bag contained school supplies necessary for the upcoming year along with hygiene products that children may need during this difficult time.

Terry Casey from Newcastle County Development picked up the bags on behalf of the state. Thanking the kids for helping the over 1000 families that are currently homeless due the global pandemic.
The Leo’s are an after school program based on community service located at the Bellevue Community Center. The students choose this project to be able to help the community. While Covid-19 may have prevented students from being able physically participate in the act of giving the book bags but students were still excited to be able to make a difference to other kids in their community.
