For the past two weeks, students in Samantha Dubs’ leadership class at Willis Jepson Middle School have been collecting warm clothes, jackets, hats, gloves, scarves and even blankets for the “Share the Warmth” program that was stared by the city of Vacaville a couple of years ago.
For extra incentive Thursday, the students passed out hot chocolate to anyone that stopped by to make a donation.
“We were looking for some good community involvement opportunities, and this just fell into our laps,” Dubs said Thursday as she supervised her students collecting clothing before school. “I have some very motivated students it’s nice to be able to give them an idea and have them run with it.”One of those students was Sada O’Hanlon. The 13-year-old eighth-grader oversaw the collection drive and was on hand passing out flyers to students as they arrived Thursday morning, reminding them that there was one more day left in the clothing drive.
