Our club conducted a Winter Outerwear Drive from January 14 until February 20 to collect warm clothing for needy adults. The clothing was distributed through homeless shelters and other local facilities. Our club decided to host its drive after the holidays, when potential donors might be replacing old outerwear with new ones from the holidays. Collection boxes were set up at the Edgewater Community Center, the Leonia Public Library, and the Palisades Park Public Library.

On January 6, our Club started distributing snack packs, in collaboration with the Englewood Center for Food Action. We are providing weekend food to the children that get free or reduced lunch at Anna C. Scott Elementary School. Our goal is to make sure the students have nutritional food seven days a week. Due to generous donations from PNC Bank and the Leonia Community Chest, our club member organizer, Pete Shanno, forecasts that we will be able to distribute weekend snack packs every Friday until the end of the school year.
