In an effort to give back to the community, members of the Hampton Bays High School Leo Club have participated in a number of community service activities throughout the month of December.
Most recently, the club members joined together to cook breakfast and serve dinner to the homeless at St. Mary’s Church in Hampton Bays as part of nonprofit Maureen’s Haven Homeless Outreach Program. The program relies on volunteers to help feed and supervise homeless guests who are given shelter at East End churches during the winter.
In addition to helping Maureen’s Haven, the club members have been spreading holiday cheer. They recently visited the Riverhead Care Center and Southampton Hospital to sing Christmas carols. The Leo Club was formed in 2015 as a community service club at Hampton Bays High School.
Based in Riverhead (28 Lincoln Street), Maureen’s Haven seeks to provide safe, warm temporary shelter to homeless individuals on the East End from November through March. The organization’s day center in Riverhead—the first of its kind in Suffolk County—offer respite from the cold and year-round services for the growing homeless population.
