Leo’s Club offers students opportunity to give back

Leo’s Club, a community service club designed to help students gain SSL hours and donate to various charities, will collect toys for Toys For Tots in the winter.

“Leo’s Club teaches students how to organize and use the skills learned to benefit them later in life,” Leo’s Club sponsor and assistant principal John Taylor said.

Leo’s Club has held activities such as raising money for Japan relief after the earthquake and selling pizza to raise money for charity.

According to club president Cameron Tehranchi, in the past, the club had a Potomac Day booth where they sold baked goods to fundraise for the Children’s Inn.

The club meets monthly in different rooms and interested students can still join.

“Our purpose is to provide the youth of the world with an opportunity for development and contribution, individually and collectively as responsible members of the local, national and international community,” Tehranchi said.
