Downey High School cheerleaders

During the Christmas break, Downey High School cheerleaders and its dance team decorated and filled more than 65 bags with basic necessities and delivered them to homeless in Los Angeles. The students assisted the Povertees Team from Downey in handing out the bags. Cheer advisors Natalie Flores and Leslie Patterson said they "very proud and excited that the girls organized this activity." The students plan to fill more bags at Easter time. The bags included socks, gloves, razors, granola bars, beef jerky, tuna, soap, lotion, combs, brushes, gum, mints, candy, ChapStick and other miscellaneous items. Local dentists contributed toothbrushes and toothpaste. ********** Published: January 12, 2012 - Volume 10 - Issue 39
