University of Toledo engineering student Robert Garber took time out of his summer co-op at First Energy last week to help with Port Clinton’s summer lunch program. Garber, 21, helped kids plant zucchini seeds during a presentation by “Recycle Dude” Brad Schwann. The twice weekly lunch is a total enrichment program which includes the meal and a craft or lesson.
According to United Way employee and site coordinator Kristen Gerwin, no kid is turned away from the lunch program. The meal and activities are offered at 11:30 a.m. Mondays and Thursdays at three locations: Jefferson Elementary, Lakeview Estates and Bay Meadows. The lunches are packed and served by local volunteers and all the food and supplies are donated. To volunteer, donate or for information, call the United Way office at 419-734-6645.
