The Howard High School LEO (Leading Each Other) Club recently volunteered at the Linwood Center Boutique and at the residence of people served by Linwood Center. Linwood Center provides programs and services for children and adults with autism and related developmental disabilities.
Students organized merchandise for sale and dressed the store windows at the Linwood Center Boutique, located in historic Ellicott City. In addition to selling new and gently used clothing, furniture and other items, the boutique provides employment and training opportunities for individuals in Linwood’s programs.
Students also planted flowers in the garden of one of Linwood’s houses, home to adults in the community-based residential program.
The LEO Club focuses on building student leadership and enhancing the school climate. The club adviser is counselor Shannon Grieve.
