Many individuals and families in our community are in need, existing day to day without the resources necessary to obtain many of the things most of us take for granted – food, clothing, housing, healthcare, just to name a few. This Thanksgiving Season, the Boo Squad is going to provide meals to 65 local families between November 22 to November 26.
The Boo Squad is a local volunteer group of children ages 3-10. The children volunteer in the community through various missions to help their community. Each mission’s purpose is specifically designed to teach the children in The Boo Squad the value of community and helping each other. The Boo Squad was founded in 2015, by Heather Hrina Medvec. They have served many organizations in the valley including but not limited to Akron Children’s Hospital, the Community Kitchen, the Beatitude House, the Paisley House, Go Baby Go, Making Kids Count, and countless others.
The goal of this mission besides to feed many local families is to teach our youth to be thankful. Thankful for many day-to-day needs, we all take for granted. The children get to take part in delivering these meals to local families and hopefully witness the impact of kindness can have on someone. Several local families and businesses have made this mission possible including Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice Greater Youngstown, Toyota of Boardman, Chic Chateau, Struthers Municipal Court and Levin’s Furniture of Niles. The Boo Squad would like to thank these businesses and local families for contributing to this mission.
The Spano Foundation hopes that this mission will encourage other members of the community to step forward and support the fund. Additional information is available at www.SpanoFoundation.com/Boo.
