Miller YMCA Youth & Government Delegation Makes Lunches for the Homeless
Members from the Miller YMCA Youth & Government delegation made over 200 lunches that were then delivered to Hearts of Compassion in Montebello to help feed the homeless.
This is the ninth year that the YMCA delegation, comprised of Newbury Park high school students, has volunteered to make lunches.
The Miller YMCA Youth & Government delegates are in 9 through 12 grade at Newbury Park High School and other local high schools. They are part of a statewide program of 90 delegations that learn about how government works while they prepare, introduce and debate bills in Sacramento at an annual conference in February.
The students made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and placed them in bags that also included oranges, carrots, chips and chocolate candy.
