The Otsego Middle School Teen Leadership classes are joining forces with Samuel’s Blankets to bring warmth to the homeless this holiday season. Samuel is 12 years old and started this drive when he was just 9. He talked to teen leadership classes at the end of September about his mission and his passion to help the homeless.
Teen Leadership is a class focused on servant leadership and students take up a service project each trimester. They’ve decided to partner with Samuel and set up blanket collection boxes in the school.
Samuel’s goal is 1800 blankets and he’s currently at 1080. If you’d like to help, just bring a new, or gently used, blanket to the middle school and drop it in the collection box outside the office. OMS has already collected 55 blankets. The drive ends at Thanksgiving.
