Pelicans Collect Warm Items for Neighbors in Need

Thirty-five students assembled winter comfort kits on February 16 to distribute to people experiencing homelessness, in an effort organized by Loomis Chaffee’s Be Homeful club. Each of the 40 kits contained a variety of health and beauty aids and comfort items, such as warm socks, mittens, and scarves, to help people during the cold weather. The Be Homeful club’s leaders, junior Viraj Dcunha and sophomore Lily Walker, are distributing the kits to nonprofit organizations that serve the local community on Friday, March 6. Be Homeful is a part of Loomis’ Community Engagement afterschool programming. Students interested in getting involved may contact Director of Community Engagement Heather Henderson for more information.
