Students from Lone Star College-Montgomery Bring the Holidays to Youth Shelter

Published on: December 18, 2009

In order to spread holiday cheer to youth in Montgomery County, students and employees from Lone Star College-Montgomery visited a Montgomery County Youth Services shelter on Wednesday, December 16, to deliver gifts, food, and decorations for a Christmas tree. Some of the students were members of the on-campus student organization, FOCUS, which stands for Followers Of Christ Uniting in Service. The students and employees took time to play games and visit with the youth at the shelter.
 
I know it meant so much to the kids at the shelter for our students to be there, said Dr. Julie Leidig, vice president of instruction at LSC-Montgomery. I believe its a good experience for the youth at the shelter to see what life could be like for them in a year or two.
