Outside the doors of Port Clinton’s Immaculate Conception School, Kathy Jo Schweitzer (left), of SIMPLE GESTURES stacked boxes, sacks, and bags onto a table. Since COVID-19 kept outsiders from entering the building, IC Administrative Assistant Gail Trent, along with Lucy the Wonder Dog, came outside to accept a total of 516 items, which included a large basket of hygiene products and Kleenex to be distributed to the students and teachers. In addition, over 300 household, educational, and personal items were included for a single mom and her children. “This distribution was a chance for us to give to several people for a variety of reasons,“ said Schweitzer. SIMPLE GESTURES offers its contributors many ways to easily give back to the community. To learn more about the program, email Schweitzer at MSKJS10@gmail.com.
