Now through December 14, the Hoosac Valley Leo Club will be conducting their annual fundraising drive for the Create a Dream project this Christmas season.

The club has taken on the responsibility of providing gifts for several needy children in the Northern Berkshire area. As noted in a press release announcing the project, this year has seen a rise in need, due to the economic climate we are dealing with.

The Leo Club will be working in conjunction with the North Adams Salvation Army. Part of the project involves raising funds for the gifts, buying, wrapping and distributing them. This is a total club effort that will include the whole school including the faculty and administration. In fact, the entire community is welcome to help out.

Anyone wishing to donate to this project can send their donations to: Hoosac Valley Leo Club, 125 Savoy Road, Cheshire, MA 01225. Checks should be made payable to: The Hoosac Valley Leo Club. All donations, large or small, will be greatly appreciated.
