Students help load up Holiday Meal BoxesILMS students accept grant money from Mary Rutan Foundation.

Indian Lake Middle School faculty members made special home deliveries just after school concluded on December 21st to make sure ILMS families in need have a hearty Christmas dinner. 
Several staff met after school at Lakeview Community Markets to pick up hams and cooking supplies for the Holiday Meal Boxes that students have been helping to fill over the past week. 
Earlier in December, ILMS Student Council accepted a $980 check during the Mary Rutan Foundation Community Health and Wellness Grant presentations. ILMS Student Council Advisor Katy Taylor explains the grant money was used to purchase hams and all items needed to prepare Christmas dinner for Holiday Meal Boxes for 24 families with students at ILMS. Students in each homeroom/LakerTime class at ILMS supplemented the Holiday Meal Boxes with other items like instant mashed potatoes, gravy, bread, vegetables and stuffing. 
School staff recommend the families to receive the packages and Taylor worked with the Lakeview Community Market grocery to purchase the meat and other items to complete the boxes. The Mary Rutan Foundation also donated 50 cookbooks to be included.
