Safeguarding elderly this winter
Weyauwega-Fremont students offer free salt buckets
A Weyauwega-Fremont High School group wants to help senior citizens keep their sidewalks and driveways free of ice this winter.
The school’s Morals and Ethics Group made buckets, then filled them with sand and salt. The sand and salt buckets are available to any senior citizen in the W-F School District who requests one.
The organization chose this community service project during a meeting at the beginning of this school year.
The W-F High School Morals and Ethics Group focuses on promoting and encouraging students to make good choices and rewards students who strive for academic success and conduct themselves positively amongst their peers.
Jeremy Schroeder, the school district’s middle and high school principal, advises the group.
The buckets are manageable for any person to handle because of their smaller size and may be stored indoors or outdoors because they have covers.
Senior citizens in the school district who want to receive a sand and salt bucket may email Schroeder at [email protected] or call him at 920-867-8960.
The group will personally deliver the sand and salt buckets to the senior citizens who request them.
They plan to distribute the buckets prior to the Christmas break.
