FAYTETTEVILLE — The Immaculate Conception School sixth-grade class of Danielle Paige gathered Feb. 26 at IC Church’s Dwyer Hall to make sandwiches to be donated to the Samaritan Center in Syracuse. A total of 300 turkey, ham, and cheese as well as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were made.
The effort was part of the “Light The Way Leaders” program that the late Patricia Schramm started at the school when she served as the Alcohol-Drug Abuse Prevention Education Program counselor for a number of years.
The sixth-graders also wrote some words of encouragement that they placed on top of the sandwich bags. They started with a prayer of Thanksgiving for their many blessings and they reflected on how Schramm inspired each and every one of them when she started the “Light The Way Leaders Program.”
